Considerable research in management uses linear regression to examine effects of multiple predictors on a dependent variable. This presentation will review key issues with this type of analysis. Topics include assumptions of OLS,  interpretation and hypothesis testing of partial regression coefficients, differences between unstandardized and standardized coefficients, tests of models,  and model comparisons. Key points will be illustrated with an example using organizational data.
