    How to visualize linear multiple regression?




    Hello,

    I have data from measuring und now i have made linear multiple regression to describe one size from five another sizes.

    I have get an equation with the following form:

    y=b0+b1*x1+b2*x2+b3*x3+b4*x4

    How can I visualize this data in four different plots, which have the form:

    y-axis y; x-axis x1
    y-axis y; x-axis x2
    y-axis y; x-axis x3
    y-axis y; x-axis x4
    ...

    Can somebody give a hint, how i can make it?

    What is the point of the plots you want to make? Always keep that in mind. What are you trying to show?
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.

    I'm trying to make a model, which describes how y depends on the different xi. I want to show this dependences with the help of plots. (For example: The first plot should show how good the model describes the relationship between y and x1)

    If they are all continuous variables, you can just use a bunch of scatterplots and can overlay the respective predictive slope from the model. Just make sure you let the reader know that the model control for the other variables.
