Issues Concerning the Use of Regression Analysis in Salary Discrimination Cases.
Barrett, Gerald V.; Sansonetti, Donna M.
Personnel Psychology, v41 n3 p503-16 Fall 1988
Examined 29 salary discrimination court cases to determine how organizations can refute regression analysis that leads to inference of discrimination in compensation. Found it equally effective for organization to introduce its own regression, other statistics, or no statistics. Plaintiff won all cases when discrimination was proven in promotion; defendants won cases when discrimination was not proven in promotion. (Author/NB)
