This dataset example introduces multiple regression, which allows researchers to evaluate whether a continuous dependent variable is a linear function of two or more independent variables. The multiple regression model is most commonly estimated via ordinary least squares (OLS), and is sometimes called OLS regression. This example uses a data subset from the WHO 2012 Global Health Observatory Data to analyse whether a country's per capita government expenditure on health and that country's International Health Regulation (IHR) score on legislation predicts female life expectancy in that country.
