# Questions tagged [regression]

In statistics, regression analysis is a statistical process for estimating the relationships among variables. It includes many techniques for modeling and analyzing several variables, when the focus is on the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables (or 'predictors').

### Fixed time and individual effects

I have the following, small question. I have panel data and have played around with it a bit. In my first estimation (1) I assumed that the coefficient of union is biased and therefore wanted to ...

### What does E[XY]=0 mean?

Where X is a regressor and Y is the dependent variable. I know that if E[XY]=E[X]E[Y] then X and Y are independent, hence uncorrelated but I don’t get what E[XY]=0 means.
