Regression Analysis by Example. 5th Edition
Chatterjee, Samprit; Hadi, Ali S.
John Wiley & Sons, Inc
Regression analysis is a conceptually simple method for investigating relationships among variables. Carrying out a successful application of regression analysis, however, requires a balance of theoretical results, empirical rules, and subjective judgment. "Regression Analysis by Example, Fifth Edition" has been expanded and thoroughly updated to reflect recent advances in the field. The emphasis continues to be on exploratory data analysis rather than statistical theory. The book offers in-depth treatment of regression diagnostics, transformation, multicollinearity, logistic regression, and robust regression. The book now includes a new chapter on the detection and correction of multicollinearity, while also showcasing the use of the discussed methods on newly added data sets from the fields of engineering, medicine, and business. The "Fifth Edition" also explores additional topics, including: (1) Surrogate ridge regression; (2) Fitting nonlinear models; (3) Errors in variables; and (4) ANOVA for designed experiments. Methods of regression analysis are clearly demonstrated, and examples containing the types of irregularities commonly encountered in the real world are provided. Each example isolates one or two techniques and features detailed discussions, the required assumptions, and the evaluated success of each technique. Additionally, methods described throughout the book can be carried out with most of the currently available statistical software packages, such as the software package R. "Regression Analysis by Example, Fifth Edition" is suitable for anyone with an understanding of elementary statistics.
