Use Predict to calculate the response values for new variable settings that you specify. Because Minitab Express uses the most recent regression model that you fit for the response, you must perform Simple Regression or Multiple Regression before you can use this analysis. The analysis includes confidence intervals and prediction intervals so that you can assess the precision of the predictions.
For example, a real estate appraiser identified a regression model to explain the sales prices of urban apartments with four predictor variables. The appraiser uses this model to predict the prices of several apartments that recently became available for sale.
