    A question about bimodality.




    First question - if my Y variable has a bimodal distribution, is it at all possible to run a regression on this variable?

    Second - if my Y variable is not normally distrubuted in GENERAL is it possible to run a regression?

    Thanks for any advice

    You can apply a log transformation on your Y variable data so you can make it appropriate for multiple regression. It corrects non-normal data.
