Hello

 

In logistic regression as we split data into Training and Validation Samples.

 

Can we do the same in Linear regression?. If not please let me know why?.

Yes. You could. But I would not recommend .

PROC REG is for predicted model ( interpolated data) , not for forecasted model (Extrapolated data) -- which is well-knowed  as Time Series Analysis .

 

If you use PROC REG for Extrapolated data, the model error would be very large, and model would not be trusted .

Yes, you can and should split your data for linear regression. 

This methodology is consistent across various statistical procedures not just

logistic regression. 

 

I'm not aware of an automatic method to factor in the diff datasets but I'd review the documentation.
