## Can you do polynomial regression in Excel?

Excel multiple regression can be performed by adding a trendline, or by using the Excel Data Analysis Toolpak. If you just want to know the equation for the line of best fit, adding a trendline will work just fine.

**What is a mediated regression?**

**What is mediation SPSS?**

What is Mediation in Research? Mediation analysis enables us to investigate the effect of one or more independent variables (predictor) on a dependent variable (outcome) via a third variable called a mediator or intervening variable.

**Is mediation a multiple regression?**
