# Weighted Moving Average Using Multiple Regression

Not what you're looking for?

1. Use Data Analysis from the attached excel file to create a multiple regression equation where the forecast for the next year is a function of the attendance in each of the previous 2 years.

That is: F(t)=a + b1*D(t-1)+b2*D(t-2)

Where:

F is the forecast for period t

a is the intercept

bj is the regression coefficient for one period ago

D(t-j) is the attendance j periods ago for

I am requesting an explanation of why we need 2 variables for this equation and why I cannot run the regression with the current data set.

Thank you!
