    There are lots of types of regression. I will throw out one example and let the others chime in as well.

    It is regularly used to predict a dependent variable using one or more variables. The example I usually use is a simple linear model, height can predict weight. For every inch on average a person may weigh 6 more pounds. That is a simple model, from there you could add gender, age, etc. to also control for at the same time since people my also have different weights based on these factors.
