Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses one of the most reliable and commonly used techniques of business forecasting, and develops an appraisal methodology by applying this technique. Of the various statistical techniques used for forecasting, the least square regression analysis has stood the test of time. The standard error of estimate aided by the ‘t’ distribution table enables a decision maker to take a position within a range depending upon the risk profile of the customer, and that of the lending organization.

Keywords:   statistical techniques, least square regression, standard error of estimate, t-distribution, forecasting
