Master linear regression techniques with a new edition of a classic text

Reviews of the Second Edition:

"I found it enjoyable reading and so full of interesting material that even the well-informed reader will probably find something new . . . a necessity for all of those who do linear regression."
—Technometrics, February 1987

"Overall, I feel that the book is a valuable addition to the now considerable list of texts on applied linear regression. It should be a strong contender as the leading text for a first serious course in regression analysis."
—American Scientist, May–June 1987

Applied Linear Regression, Third Edition has been thoroughly updated to help students master the theory and applications of linear regression modeling. Focusing on model building, assessing fit and reliability, and drawing conclusions, the text demonstrates how to develop estimation, confidence, and testing procedures primarily through the use of least squares regression. To facilitate quick learning, the Third Edition stresses the use of graphical methods in an effort to find appropriate models and to better understand them. In that spirit, most analyses and homework problems use graphs for the discovery of structure as well as for the summarization of results.

The Third Edition incorporates new material reflecting the latest advances, including:

• Use of smoothers to summarize a scatterplot
• Box-Cox and graphical methods for selecting transformations
• Use of the delta method for inference about complex combinations of parameters
• Computationally intensive methods and simulation, including the bootstrap method
• Expanded chapters on nonlinear and logistic regression
• Completely revised chapters on multiple regression, diagnostics, and generalizations of regression

• More than 100 exercises, most based on interesting real-world data
• Web primers demonstrating how to use standard statistical packages, including R, S-Plus®, SPSS®, SAS®, and JMP®, to work all the examples and exercises in the text
• A free online library for R and S-Plus that makes the methods discussed in the book easy to use

With its focus on graphical methods and analysis, coupled with many practical examples and exercises, this is an excellent textbook for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, who will quickly learn how to use linear regression analysis techniques to solve and gain insight into real-life problems.

From the Inside Flap:

Applied Linear Regression, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide to the methods of applied linear regression. Focusing on model building, assessing fit and reliability, and drawing conclusions, it develops estimation, confidence, and testing procedures mostly using least squares. Throughout, the importance of assumptions and their relevance in specific problems is stressed. Updated to reflect the enormous progress in the area of linear regression since the First Edition in 1980, the Second Edition cites more than 60 references, and includes several new problems, figures, and a totally new chapter that introduces students to nonlinear, logistic, and generalized linear regression models. Containing more than 20 worked examples, real data is used to illustrate variable selection, new predictor construction and dummy variables, model validation and other topics. Applied Linear Regression, Second Edition provides the most in-depth coverage available on transforming variables, finding problems with assumptions, and identifying influential cases. It discusses the special problems of inference and prediction from regression models. And throughout, graphical methods are generously discussed and illustrated. Additional topics include:

• Standard results for simple and multiple regression.
• The difficulties of using and interpreting regression models and estimates.
• Model building, variable selection, adding polynomials, and choosing transformations.
• Regression diagnostics, assumptions, and influence of cases.
