Multicollinearity refers to high correlation between independent variables in a regression model, when they are supposed to be independent among themselves. This causes problems in fitting the model, redundancy and and interpreting the results.

Multicollinearity can be dealt with by:

1.    Assessing logically whether each independent variable included in a model is really unique and measuring something different from the others.

2.    Determining the correlation between independent variables

3.    Looking at scatter plots.

4.    Eliminating the redundant independent variable(s).
