Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Say we collect data points ##(x_i,y_j)## to do a linear regression, but so that for each ##x_i ## we collect

values ##y_{i1}, y_{i2},...,y_{ij} ## . Is there a standard way of doing linear regression with this type of dataset?

Would we, e.g., average the ##y_{ij}## abd define it to be ## y_i## to have a single data set ##(x_i, y_i) ## to do linear regression on?

Thanks.
