A fitted linear regression model can be used to identify the relationship between a single predictor variable x j and the response variable y when all the other predictor variables in the model are "held fixed". Specifically, the interpretation of β j is the expected change in y for a one-unit change in x j when the other covariates are held fixed—that is, the expected value of the partial.

If v (a, x i t) were a linear function of the parameters θ, these expressions would be familiar as the choice probability of binary probit, logit or multinomial logit models.In general, v (a, x i t) is a complex nonlinear function of θ which has to be computed from the Bellman equation in.

In statistics, the term linear model is used in different ways according to the context. The most common occurrence is in connection with regression models and the term is often taken as synonymous with linear regression model.
