    General Term for Models with Dependend and Independend Variables




    Hi!

    What is the general term for models with dependend and independend variables, like regressions, generalized linear models, decision trees, and so on? I thought it would be exploratory model. But exploratory data analysis seems to denote something different.

    I thought it would be exploratory model.
    explanatory?

    But I don't know how whether decision trees do fit in.

    With kind regards

    Yeah, the term explanatory statistical model seems to be the term, I am looking for.

    Thanks

    I have just recognized, that the wikipedia article predictive (statistical) models exactly describes all the models models with dependend and independend variables, I had in mind. So predictive statistical models seems to be the best general term, I guess.
