R, Python, and SAS: Getting Started with Linear Regression

Consider the linear regression model, $$ y_i=f_i(\boldsymbol{x}|\boldsymbol{\beta})+\varepsilon_i, $$ where $y_i$ is the response or the dependent variable at the $i$th case, $i=1,\cdots, N$ and the predictor or the independent variable is the $\boldsymbol{x}$ term defined in the mean function $f_i(\boldsymbol{x}|\boldsymbol{\beta})$. For simplicity, consider the following simple linear regression (SLR) model, $$ y_i=\beta_0+\beta_1x_i+\varepsilon_i. $$ To obtain the (best) estimate of $\beta_0$ and $\beta_1$, we solve for the least residual sum of…
