multivariate multiple regression

Multivariate Multiple Regression is a method of modeling multiple responses, or dependent variables, with a single set of predictor variables. For example, we might want to model both math and reading SAT scores as a function of gender, race, parent income, and so forth. This allows us to evaluate the relationship of, say, gender with each score. You may be thinking, "why not just run separate regressions for each dependent variable?" That's actually a good idea! And in fact that's pretty much what multivariate multiple regression does.
