Suggested answer to Exercise: Regression analyses, 8

Question 8: Why was the regression adjusted and what does this mean?

Suggested answer

Regression may be adjusted because the variable of interest, systolic blood pressure, is related to the adjusting variables, age, race, area, and ponderal index. We want to estimate the effect of recovery index on systolic pressure in children with the same age, race, area, and ponderal index.
