term "regression" was coined by Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles
Darwin, in the nineteenth century to describe a biological
phenomenon. The phenomenon was that the heights of descendants of
tall ancestors tend to regress down towards a normal average. For
Galton, regression had only this biological meaning, but his work
was later extended by Udny Yule and Karl Pearson to a more general
statistical context. At the present time, the term "regression" is
often synonymous with "least-squares curve fitting."
