Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to present a computer program which will perform the calculations needed for latent root regression analysis. Latent root regression is a technique proposed by the authors to supplement ordinary least squares when multicollinearity exists in the matrix of regression variables. Included in the paper is a discussion of input and output for the program. references for a discussion of the technique, a program listing, and sample output. (Author)
