Jason Cantrell shows how to create a simple linear regression in Power BI:

Linear Regression is a very useful statistical tool that helps us understand the relationship between variables and the effects they have on each other. It can be used across many industries in a variety of ways – from spurring value to gaining customer insight – to benefit business.

The Simple Linear Regression model allows us to summarize and examine relationships between two variables. It uses a single

independentvariable and a singledependentvariable and finds a linear function that predicts thedependentvariable values as a function of theindependentvariables.

If you want real linear regression, drop in an R or Python script.
