Overview

Written by established experts in the field, the purpose of this handbook is to provide a practical, one-stop reference on regression analysis. The focus is on the tools that both practitioners and researchers use in real life. It is intended to be a comprehensive collection of the theory, methods, and applications of the subject matter, but it is deliberately written at an accessible level. The handbook will provide a quick and convenient reference or "refresher" on ideas and methods that are useful for the accurate analysis of data and its resulting interpretations. Students can use the book as an introduction to and/or summary of key concepts in regression and related course work (such as linear, nonlinear, and nonparametric regressions). Plentiful references are supplied for the more motivated readers. Theory is presented when necessary, and always supplemented by hands-on examples. Software routines are available via an author-maintained web site.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Overall, a valuable user-friendly resource. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (Choice, 1 October 2013)

“All in all, I also very much like the Handbook and if I were not to retire this year, I would be happy to tell my students that it is a very nice and handy book.” (International Statistical Review, 15 February 2013)
