Chapter 3 Regression analysis

While we do not expect to cover the regression analysis in its fullness, I think that it is important to have some basic understanding of what regression model is, how it can be estimated and used for forecasting. This chapter introduces the regression starting from the simple linear model and then moving to more advanced topics of multiple linear regression, model estimation, regression assumptions, dummy variables, variables transformations, likelihood approach and model for scale of distribution.
