Select the dependent variable
Select the dependent variable (i.e., the variable you want to predict or explain).
Select the regressors
Select the regressors (or explanatory variables).
Choose only numeric variables that you would like to treat as continuous. In the next stage you will choose the numeric variables
to encode as dummies.
Select the variables to encode as dummies
Choose the variables that you want to include in your regression after encoding them as groups of dummies
(i.e., explanatory variables that can take only two values, either 1 or 0).
When you select a variable that takes n different values (indicated between parentheses below), n dummies are created and included in your regression.
Unable to run: too many regressors. The number of regressors is greater than or equal to the sample size. Please reduce the number of regressors and try again.

Here are the results from your regression.
Sample size and degrees of freedom
Here is the calculation of the degrees of freedom (sample size - number of parameters).
Numerosity, number of parameters and degrees of freedom.
Coefficient estimates and their significance
In the next table, you can find the OLS coefficient estimates, their standard errors and other statistics.
Help me to understand the columns in the table.
A t-statistic is used to test the null hypothesis that a single coefficient is equal to zero.
A p-value is derived from the t-statistic and can be used to decide whether to:
- reject the null hypothesis (p-value < level of significance)
- or not to reject it (p-value >= level of significance).
The p-value is two-sided if the null is tested against the alternative hypothesis that the coefficient can be either significantly negative or significantly positive. The p-value is one-sided if only one of the two alternatives is deemed possible.
Rows correspond to regressors.
Goodness of fit
And here are some statistics about the fit of the regression model (details).
Scatter plot of actual vs fitted values
In a well-specified regression model, the points in an actual-vs-fitted scatter plot should be evenly distributed around the 45-degrees line.
In a model that fits the data very well, the points should be very close to the 45-degrees line.
Data privacy and security
Your data remains on your computer and is analyzed by your browser.
The multiple regression calculator does not send data over the Internet and does not use remote servers to perform computations. Therefore, your data remains completely private and secure.
SimpleR is intended to meet the highest scientific standards. It is often tested on new data sets to make sure that the results from the regression calculator coincide with those provided by well-tested scientific and statistical software such as R and Python (with NumPy and Scikit-learn).
