Abstract : Multiple correlation analysis will not seriously compete with established costing practices, but under some circumstances will prove useful for developing cost estimates not determinable by other means. This paper presents a simple example in order to give accountants a glimpse of the technique and to enable them to recognize potential applications. Consultation with a statistician or a good textbook is urged.
