Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) consists of calculations that provide information about levels of variability within a regression model and form a basis for tests of significance.
The ANOVA calculations formultiple regression are nearly identical to the calculations for simple linear regression, except that the degrees of freedom are adjusted to reflect the number of explanatory variables included in the model.

For explanatory variables,the (DFM) are equal to , the (DFE) are equal to ( - 1), and the (DFT) are equal to ( - 1), the sum of DFM and DFE. The corresponding ANOVA table is shown below:
