Question by Ben: How does the interpretation of the regression coefficients diverge in multiple regression and elementary regression?
Can you please help with this question for statistics math class? Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks
Answer by Richard
In multiple regression, the regression coefficient gives you the rate of change in outcome per unit change in predictor *assuming all other predictors are held constant*. That’s the crucial difference. In simple regression there are no other predictors to hold constant.
