Strategies for Identification and Detection of Outliers in Multiple Regression.
Vannoy, Martha
Outliers are frequently found in data sets and can cause problems for researchers if not addressed. Failure to identify and deal with outliers in an appropriate manner may lead researchers to report erroneous results. Using a multiple regression context, this paper examines some of the reasons for the presence of outliers and simple methods for identifying them. Heuristic data sets and scatterplots provide illustrations of the concepts discussed.(Contains 2 figures, 2 tables, and 11 references.) (Author/SLD)
