# Quantitative Regression Analysis

From Eigenvector Documentation Wiki

## Contents |

These methods develop regression models which attempt to predict a quantity based on measurements of responses (x-block) and corresponding quantities (y-block) on known samples.

The y-block may contain a physical quantity which is directly related to the measurements in the x-block, or it may be a value which is indirectly related to the measured x-block values. In the latter case, the resulting model is considered an "inferential" model.
