Explanatory variables, Advanced Statistics

The variables appearing on the right-hand side of equations defining, for instance, multiple regressions or the logistic regression, and which seek to predict or 'explain' response variable. Also generally known as the independent variables, though this is not to be recommended since they are rarely independent of one other.
