This chapter lays down the essential understanding of multiple regression analysis as a method to examine the relationships between multiple variables. The chapter introduces the basic assumptions needed for conducting such analyses, the manner in which hypotheses should be dealt with when using such analyses and a variety of implementation issues that researchers often face when using multiple regression analysis. In the second part of the chapter presents an example of a study using such methodology to examine the relationship between status inconsistency and public employee satisfaction. This section shows how a results section using multiple regression should be presented, including the tables and additional information that should be provided. Using this example, the authors highlight the advantages and disadvantages of this traditional methodology.
