ANOVA and Regression


#1

Hi…

What is difference between ANOVA and Regression. Both are forms of general linear model. I read from some blogs that they are closely related to each other. Can someone explain it mathematically.

Hi,

Regression is a statistical model that you use to predict a continuous outcome on the basis of one or more continuous predictor variables where as ANOVA is used to predict a continuous outcome on the basis of one or more categorical predictor variables.
