# Excel 2010 Regression Analysis

### What is Regression Analysis

Regression analysis is a pure statistical term which includes the techniques for modeling and analyzing several variables, when the focus is on the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In layman’s term, it lets you see how value of one variable(also called dependent variable) changes when any one of the independent variables varies.
