     I need some guidance with the analysis of two columns of data.  In my over-simplified scenario, the independent variable (X) is ordinal and the dependent variable (Y) is continuous.  The data represents a sales force that has made one of eight frequency choices (X) and each rep’s resulting production (Y).So, I have three questions:  (1) How can I put this into a regression equation to create a predictive model (2) what are the keys to interpreting Minitab’s results of the LOR, and (3) is LOR the right tool? Thanks in advance!

    Hi!
    If I get you right, LOR isn’t the right tool. LOR is used when you have an ordinal Y variable and one or more continuous X variables (i.e. just the other way round as you have).
    In your case, you can use a simple linear regression and / or the fitted line plot (if you work with Minitab).
    For any help to how to conduct the regression analysis and / or interpret the results don’t hesitate to ask me!
