Some Applied Research Concerns Using Multiple Linear Regression Analysis.
Newman, Isadore; Fraas, John W.
The intention of this paper is to provide an overall reference on how a researcher can apply multiple linear regression in order to utilize the advantages that it has to offer. The advantages and some concerns expressed about the technique are examined. A number of practical ways by which researchers can deal with such concerns as correlation/causation, upward bias R-squared, and multicollinearity are discussed. (MS)
