There seams to be a high demand for understanding Regression at the moment. Here are a few suggested resources  i’d recommend you refer to to get you on your way:

Discovering Statistics using SPSS -by Andy Field

Statistics without maths for psychology – by Christine Dancey & John Reidy

If these specific books are not checked in, have a look on the shelves around them, there will be many similarly useful books there. (Don’t be put off if it’s subject specific such as the Dancy & Reidy book)

Many online videos….

Multiple Regression Analysis

The Joy of Statistics

To those who don’t know of him, I’d like to quickly introduce you to Hans Rosling, Professor of Global Health. Hans has a mission to show that statistics can be fun. Although I’m already sold on this concept I am well away that the majority are not!

As part of his mission he has co-founded and is chairman of the Gapminder Foundation. The Gapminder Foundation has set out its aims to:

“…promote sustainable global development and achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals by increased use and understanding of statistics and other information about social, economic and environmental development at local, national and global levels.”

The video below is a snippet of his work and introduction to Trendalyzer; software developed by the Gapfinder Foundation that converts international statistics into interactive graphs.
