# Resid error in Multiple regression syntax. Having trouble identifying error in syntax please help.

senario:

The researcher was interested in determining if the energy conservation practices of college students could be predicted from their participation in a training program, consumer attitudes, and gender. The following data were collected from a random sample of 30 students:

## Re: Resid error in Multiple regression syntax. Having trouble identifying error in syntax please hel

Proper syntax and options would be:

``````data PEC;

## Re: Resid error in Multiple regression syntax. Having trouble identifying error in syntax please hel

Same idea as before. Do it one step at a time.

Fix your data import step first.
