This item may be Check for Availability Other titles in the Duxbury Applied series:Applied Regression Analysis and Multivariable Methods
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:This bestseller will help you learn regressionanalysis methods that you can apply to reallife problems. It highlights the role of the computer in contemporary statistics with numerous printouts and exercises that you can solve using the computer. The authors continue to emphasize model development, the intuitive logic and assumptions that underlie the techniques covered, the purposes, advantages, and disadvantages of the techniques, and valid interpretations of those techniques.
Book News Annotation:Regression analysis has become a mainstay of research in diverse fields; in this edition the authors take this popularity into consideration along with the fact that computers are everywhere. They cover concepts and examples of research, classification of variables and the choice of analysis, statistics, the workings of regression analysis, straightline regression analysis, the correlation coefficient and straightline regression analysis, the analysis of variable table, multiple regression analysis, testing hypotheses in multiple regression, various types of correlation, confounding and interactions, dummy variables, adjusting continuous data, regression diagnoses, polynomial regression, selecting the best regression equation, oneway analysis of variance, randomized blocks, twoway anova with equal and unequal cell numbers, maximum likelihood, logistic regression analysis, polytomous and ordinal logistic regression, Poisson regression analysis, analysis of corelated data, and sample size planning for linear and logistic regression and analysis of variance.
