Multiple Linear Regression

Multiple Linear Regression

do the section on Multiple Linear Regression (435-442). I especially chose you for this section because you seemed from last week’s discussion that you at least have some knowledge of statistics since you included a power analysis in your post.

To prepare:

Review the information in your assigned chapter.
As a group, develop a 1-page study sheet that includes the following:
The key concepts of the chapter: Focus on the basic concepts that are important for nurses to understand as they review research studies.
A description of the statistical methods covered in the chapter, what they measure, and under what circumstances they are used. Identify examples of how the statistical methods have been used in research studies.
An explanation of the key statistical tests and how they measure significance (if applicable).

Note: This should be a collaborative effort, with each member of the group making contributions to the design and content of the study sheet. Use the Groups link on the left navigation bar to collaborate with your group. When you have developed your 1-page study sheet, select one member to post it to the Week 9 Discussion Forum so that the rest of your colleagues can access it.

Post on or before Day 5 your group’s study sheet. Discuss why it is important for nurses to understand the basics of these statistical methods.
