Choosing the Correct Type of Regression Analysis November 10, By Jim Frost 84 Comments Regression analysis mathematically describes the relationship between a set of independent variables and a dependent variable. There are numerous types of regression models that you can use. This choice often depends on the kind of data you have for the dependent variable and the type of model that provides the best fit. In this post, I cover the more common types of regression analyses and how to decide which one is right for your data.
I decided it was time to revisit why I believe we women should wear a swimsuit — with some new and old thoughts. I have a lot of friends who do the latter.
They go to the pool with their kids, but they only put their feet in the pool. They sit on the sidelines, too concerned about what they look like and what others will think to embrace the joy of swimming with their kids.
Or they go to the beach, but stay under the umbrella instead of running into the ocean. And it makes me incredibly sad.
Because when women stay on the sidelines because of insecurity, we are modeling unhealthy behavior to our children and we are missing out.
Your swimsuit does not define you. That soft tummy you are trying to hide? Has stretched and grown life. Those thighs that have long lost their gap? Gave you the strength to carry that beach ball for 9 months, then walk with life hanging on your hips for years after. You are a mother. Put that swimming suit on.
When we went to the beach in April, I weighed a few pounds more than I wanted to. But you know what? We laughed and splashed and had the best time. That night, I asked Elias what his favorite part of being at the beach was and you know what he said? A few weeks after that beach tripI found out I was pregnant.
Every week this summer I am a little rounder than the week before. I still put on my swimming suit every chance I get and go swimming with my kids. And I love being with them.
Last weekend, I put on my swimsuit, looked at myself in the mirror and took a deep breath. But it looks more like too many potato chips than a baby.
I wanted to have fun and make memories at that pool.
I refuse to sacrifice memories with my children because of a soft tummy. Because at the end of the day, it is not just about me. It is about my kids. I want them to remember twirling in the water with their mom.
I want them to remember splash fights together. I want them to remember jumping off the edge of the pool into my arms. I want them to remember that their mom was there, with them.
Today, I hope to encourage you to push your insecurities aside. Put on that bathing suit. Run through the sprinkler.

Jump in the pool. Your child will remember those moments and your freedom — not how you looked in your swimming suit. If this post resonated with you, please share it on Facebook or Twitter.

OLS produces the fitted line that minimizes the sum of the squared differences between the data points and the line. Linear regression, also known as ordinary least squares (OLS) and linear least squares, is the real workhorse of the regression world.
Use linear regression to understand the mean change in a dependent variable given a one-unit change in each independent variable.
