Abstract: This article assesses the role of regression analysis in family business research. We discuss four specific types of regression (multiple linear, stepwise, hierarchical, and nonlinear) and review how each type has been used in prior family business research. In order to specify a systematic guide to using regression analysis, specific examples are provided using SPSS. The article concludes by providing several rules of thumb for the use of regression analysis.
