     REGRESSION
             /VARIABLES=var_list
             /DEPENDENT=var_list
             /STATISTICS={ALL, DEFAULTS, R, COEFF, ANOVA, BCOV}
             /SAVE={PRED, RESID}

The REGRESSION procedure reads the active dataset and outputs statistics relevant to the linear model specified by the user.

The VARIABLES subcommand, which is required, specifies the list of variables to be analyzed. Keyword VARIABLES is required. The DEPENDENT subcommand specifies the dependent variable of the linear model. The DEPENDENT subcommand is required. All variables listed in the VARIABLES subcommand, but not listed in the DEPENDENT subcommand, are treated as explanatory variables in the linear model.

All other subcommands are optional:

The STATISTICS subcommand specifies the statistics to be displayed:

ALL
All of the statistics below.
R
The ratio of the sums of squares due to the model to the total sums of squares for the dependent variable.
COEFF
A table containing the estimated model coefficients and their standard errors.
ANOVA
Analysis of variance table for the model.
BCOV
The covariance matrix for the estimated model coefficients.

The SAVE subcommand causes pspp to save the residuals or predicted values from the fitted model to the active dataset. pspp will store the residuals in a variable called ‘RES1’ if no such variable exists, ‘RES2’ if ‘RES1’ already exists, ‘RES3’ if ‘RES1’ and ‘RES2’ already exist, etc. It will choose the name of the variable for the predicted values similarly, but with ‘PRED’ as a prefix. When SAVE is used, pspp ignores TEMPORARY, treating temporary transformations as permanent.
