I think regression is the best way; I am not familiar with how either of the two concepts are measured; for general guidance on this kind of adjustment, I suggest the following two articles (which have different but related points): Rosenbaum, PR and Rubin, DB (1984), "Difficulties with regression analyses of age-adjusted rates," _Biometrics_ 40: 437-443 Kronmal, RA (1993), "Spurious correlation and the fallacy of the ratio standard revisited," _Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A_, 156(3): 379-392; comments and reply in the same journal (1995), 158(3): 619-625 Rich On 7/20/11 8:28 AM, Lars Folkestad wrote: > Thank You For the swift answare. > I was indeed trying to predict the residuals for the regression model. > > What i am trying to do is to adjust a Bone Density Value for the > participants Body surface area.
