#### Abstract

The problem of multiple regression analysis where the dependent and independent variables are components of a two dimensional vector is discussed, and a complete statistical development of the solution of estimators for the parameters in the model given. The theory regarding predictions and confidence statements about such predictions is also developed. A computer code was written for the IBM 704 computer which solves the above problem and a description of the code appears in the appendix.

The statistical model was applied to a meteorological problem in wind forecasting at the Eniwetok Proving Ground, and prediction equations were developed and evaluated.
