Regression Line

The line on a graph that represents the relationship defined by the regression coefficients. For example, the line from the relationship given in the definition of regression coefficient would cross the y – Axis at the value $10,000 and would go up $5,000 for each movement of 1 to the right. This example illustrates one of the subtleties required in understanding regression analysis: in fact, there is no line, because the independent variable is not a continuous variable, but it is easier to talk about the relationship by pretending that the variable is continuous and represent the relationship by a line rather than the more nearly correct series of vertical bars on a bar chart.
