With the advancement in science and technology along with growing demand for emergency medical care, estimation of some unknown factors of interest has become vital in biomedical science and healthcare. Prediction based on a known variable could be applied in making decisions, correcting an error, preventing any risk, or for some achievement. It can be an estimation of needed items and devices; recovery time of a patient, profit or loss of the organization, etc. One of the requiring statistics for this purpose is regression analysis which can identify the influence of one variable on another and calculate the unknown prediction from a familiar one.
