Conventional regression lets you take the values of independent variables and predict the mean value of a dependent variable. It thus provides a single equation. The relatively new method of "quantile regression" lets you take the values of independent variables and predict the quantile function of the independent variable. It thus provides a family of equations. It could be said that to determine the 0.35 quantile of the independent variable one uses the function , whereas to predict the 0.65 quantile of the independent variable one uses the function .
