Teaching About Influence in Simple Regression.
Lorenz, Frederick O.
Teaching Sociology, v15 n2 p173-77 Apr 1987
Shows how an introductory social science statistics course can improve the treatment of regression assumptions, the problem of outliers, and the important idea that some outliers have greater influence than others through the use of Anscombe's now classic 1973 example and Cook's (1977; 1979) extension of the idea of influence.
