Use this to predict the value for a future observation based on the current fitted linear regression model.

## List of explanatory variates

Lists all the explanatory variables in the current regression model along with the value to predict the response variable from. You can change the values to predict the response variable from by either double-clicking on an explanatory variable name or by selecting the names and clicking the **Change values** button.

Change values |
Opens a window that lets you change the values of the currently selected explanatory variables. |

## Include variance of future observation

Specifies whether you want the variance of predictions to be calculated on the basis of forecasting new observations. The default is for the variance of predictions to be calculated on the basis of summarizing the data to which the data has been fitted.
