Omission of "error" and/or "residual error" from index. It is discussed as a topic in one specific occurrence on p.245.
Note from the Author or Editor: Add "error of prediction" and "residual error" to the index, with reference to page 245.

DurbinWatson is not in the index. I looked up autocorrelation but the DW is not associated with it in the text. It is mentioned on pg. 203
Note from the Author or Editor: Add "DurbinWatson statistic" to the index, with a reference to page 203.

My page number is relative to my font size, but in the "The Focus of This Book" you'll find: "Several things are necessary to be able in the process of thinking with numbers."
Note from the Author or Editor: please change sentence to read "Several things are necessary to be able to think with numbers."

Last two lines of "Independent and Dependent Variables" 
In the closing sentences of the last paragraph of the section "Independent and Dependent Variables" the words indepenent and dependent have been described exactly the other way  at least if it should be consistent with the rest of the paragraphs idea.
Note from the Author or Editor: on p. 54, the end of the last sentence of the paragraph beginning "Some researchers believe... " should read "thus, we will use "dependent variable" to identify the variables that reflect the outcome of a study and "independent variable" to mean the variables believed to influence the outcome."

First numbered list, item 3 
Inconsistent with the item 1 (correct ranking from smallest to largest) in the instructions to compute the percentiles, the item 3 reads: "the (j+1)th largest measurement" should be used, while correctly it should be the (j+1)th smallest measurement, or more unambiguous, "the measurement ranked (j+1)th".
Note from the Author or Editor: Affirmed; also notice plural for "observations":
for item 3 in the first list on p. 91 (printed edition), the sentence should read: If (nk)/100 is not an integer, the kth percentile of the observations is measurement ranked (j + 1)th, where j is the largest integer less than (nk)/100.

2nd paragraph below the heading "The Variance and Standard Deviation" 
The formula for the deviation is wrongly typeset, the index of x should be simply i and the subtraction should be on the first level (x_i  µ) instead of (x_{i  µ}).

Figure 519 
The definition of r_{pb} in Figure 519 (pointbiserial correlation coefficient) shows the numerator of the fraction as
\bar{X}_{1}\bar{X}_{0}\sqrt{p(1p)}
i.e. it indicates that only the X0 term is multiplied by sqrt{p(1p)}.
The example in Figure 5_20 indicates that the whole (X1  X0) term which should be multiplied by sqrt{p(1p)}. The definition in 5_19 could be amended to put brackets around the whole (X_1  X_0) term.
Note from the Author or Editor: For Figure 519 and F20, the Xbarsub1 minute Xbarsub0 term should be in parentheses

Figure 103 
The label of the xaxis on Figure 103 appears to be incorrect/misleading. The label is "log_gni" (indicating that it is after a logarithmic transformation of GNI), but the graph title, and the explanatory text on page 247, indicate that Figure 103 is based on the raw GNI (i.e. before the logarithmic transformation), and that it is only Figure 104 which uses the logarithmic transformation. Consider relabelling the xaxis of Figure 103 as "gni" instead of "log_gni".
Note from the Author or Editor: for Figure 103 on page 248 of the PDF, the xaxis should be labeled as GNI not log_gni

"The DurbinWatson statistic for this model is 0.195 very close to the null value of 2".
Either the test statistic calculated is not the actual value which was calculated or the statement is incorrect based on the value of the stated test statistic.
Note from the Author or Editor: In the first full paragraph, the value of the DurbinWatson statistic should be 1.95, not 0.195.

Omission:
"We will evaluate the assumption of homoscedasticity....".
The definition is not explained where it is referenced. It can not be found in the glossary or the index.
The prior edition has the term in the index. It can be found on pg. 199

Add "homoscedasticity" to the index, referencing p. 255

Table 106 and preceding paragraph. 
The values in this table are not consistent, and the text on interpreting Tolerance and VIF appears to reverse the terms.
The text states that VIF = 1/tolerance, but the values appear to be approximately a factor of 10 out. (For example: in row "Log_gni", tolerance is 0.50 and VIF is 20.04, but 1/0.50 = 2.0, not 20.04.) Consider recalculating and correcting these.
The text above the table states "tolerance should not be greater than 10 or VIF lower than 0.10". This is not consistent with other sources, or with this text's interpretation of the values in the table: the table shows low tolerances and high VIF, but the text states that there is a problem with the data. Consider replacing "tolerance should not be greater than 10 or VIF lower than 0.10" with "VIF should not be greater than 10 or tolerance lower than 0.10".
Note from the Author or Editor: page 256, first paragraph, third sentence, second clause should be amended to read "one popular rules is that tolerance should not be less than 0.10 or VIF greater than 10."
In Table 106, the tolerance values should be: 0.05, 0.02, and 0.08

Last equation in Figure A15 
In a series of examples of dividing out common factors to simplify fractions, (4x^3y^2)/(2xy^3) is said to reduce to 2xy^1 instead of 2x^2y^1.
