Book description
Praise for the Fourth Edition
"As with previous editions, the authors have produced a leading textbook on regression."
—Journal of the American Statistical Association
A comprehensive and uptodate introduction to the fundamentals of regression analysis
Introduction to Linear Regression Analysis, Fifth Edition continues to present both the conventional and less common uses of linear regression in today's cuttingedge scientific research. The authors blend both theory and application to equip readers with an understanding of the basic principles needed to apply regression modelbuilding techniques in various fields of study, including engineering, management, and the health sciences.
Following a general introduction to regression modeling, including typical applications, a host of technical tools are outlined such as basic inference procedures, introductory aspects of model adequacy checking, and polynomial regression models and their variations. The book then discusses how transformations and weighted least squares can be used to resolve problems of model inadequacy and also how to deal with influential observations. The Fifth Edition features numerous newly added topics, including:
A chapter on regression analysis of time series data that presents the DurbinWatson test and other techniques for detecting autocorrelation as well as parameter estimation in time series regression models
Regression models with random effects in addition to a discussion on subsampling and the importance of the mixed model
Tests on individual regression coefficients and subsets of coefficients
Examples of current uses of simple linear regression models and the use of multiple regression models for understanding patient satisfaction data.
In addition to Minitab, SAS, and SPLUS, the authors have incorporated JMP and the freely available R software to illustrate the discussed techniques and procedures in this new edition. Numerous exercises have been added throughout, allowing readers to test their understanding of the material, and a related FTP site features the presented data sets, extensive problem solutions, software hints, and PowerPoint slides to facilitate instructional use of the book.
Introduction to Linear Regression Analysis, Fifth Edition is an excellent book for statistics and engineering courses on regression at the upperundergraduate and graduate levels. The book also serves as a valuable, robust resource for professionals in the fields of engineering, life and biological sciences, and the social sciences.
