The words "dependent variables" and "independent variables" are the cornerstones of every regression. However, I am collecting the alternative ways to call these two terms. Because in a paper, these words will be repeated a lot of times so I want to know more about that.
What I know so far is:
dependent variables: regressand
independent variables: regressors, covariates
A variable is a covariate if it is related to the dependent variable. According to this definition, any variable that is measurable and considered to have a statistical relationship with the dependent variable would qualify as a potential covariate
