Applied Multiple Regression/Correlation Analysis for the Behavioral Sciences is the classic text on multiple regression. It is noted for its non-mathematical, applied, and data-analytic approach intended to teach the reader "how to do it." Students and researchers profit from its verbal-conceptual exposition and frequent use of concrete examples. The applied emphasis provides clear illustrations of the principles and provides worked examples of the types of applications that are possible. Researchers learn how to specify regression models that directly address their research questions of interest. Early in the text an overview of the fundamental ideas of multiple regression and a review of bivariate correlation and regression and other elementary statistical concepts provide a strong foundation for a solid understanding of the rest of the text. The third edition reflects both the current and developing state-of-the-art practices in the field: *An increased emphasis on graphics provides greater understanding of data. *An increased emphasis on the use of confidence intervals and effect size measures provides more information about the size and precision of relationships. *An accompanying CD contains data for most of the numerical examples along with the computer code for SPSS, SAS, and SYSTAT. These computer scripts can serve as templates for the analysis of the student's own data. *Five entirely new chapters are included: Assumptions of the regression model and remedies when they are not met (Ch. 4), detection and treatment of the potential problems of outliers and multicollinearity (Ch. 10), alternative regression models that may be used when the dependent variable is binary, ordered category, or count in form, including logistic, ordinal logistic, Poisson regression, and the generalized linear model (Ch. 13), multilevel models for data collected in groups or other clusters (Ch. 14), and the analysis of longitudinal data (Ch. 15). *Extensively revi

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...anyone with an interest in or need to carry out MR will find it invaluable." - British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology

"I can't see how a practicing research psychologist could be without a copy." - Dr. Steven P. Reise, University of California at Los Angeles

"Overall we think the book successfully reflects more contemporary issues, thinking, and advances in multiple regression and correlation....The general style and format, consistent with the previous editions, is understandable while still retaining depth and comprehensiveness." - Drs. Lynda A. and Daniel W. King, Boston University School of Medicine

"I think VERY highly of this revision....The chapter on regression diagnostics and graphics (Ch. 4) is a wonderful addition. Also, the emphasis on confidence intervals is great, as is the extensive discussion on logistic regression." - Dr. William F. Chaplin, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa

"I have always felt that the book's major strength was its ability to blend careful, thoughtful explanation with a relatively non-technical exposition....I am happy to say that in my opinion this edition retains and furthermore expands upon this strength." - Dr. Harry Reis, University of Rochester

Since the publication of the first edition, multiple regression is increasingly used in the social and behavioral sciences. In this new edition, the material is not substantially changed aside from a down-playing of the use of analysis of variance, increased emphasis on graphical representation, and a moving away from reliance on correlational statistics. Chapters cover bivariate and multiple correlation and regression; data visualization; data analytic strategies; quantitative scales, curvilinear relationships, and transformations; continuous, nominal independent, and categorical variables; outliers and multicollinearity; missing data; causal models; alternative regression models; set correlation with multiple dependent values. The text does not make clear what the CD-ROM contains. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
