Applied regression analysis. Incl. 1 disk. 3rd ed. (English) Zbl 0895.62073
New York, NY: Wiley. xvii, 706 p. (1998).
The second edition had 10 chapters; this edition has 26. On the whole the authors have chosen to use smaller chapters and so distinguish more between different types of material. New to this edition are chapters 16 on multicollinearity, 18 on generalized linear models, 19 on mixture ingredients as predictor variables, 20 and 21 on the geometry of least squares, 25 on robust regression, and 26 on resampling procedures (bootstrapping). One hundred and one true/false questions have also been provided; all of these are in ”true” form to prevent readers remembering erroneous material. A diskette that accompanies the book includes data files for the examples used in the chapters and for the exercises. These files can be used as input for standard statistical analysis programs. The book will be useful to students and researchers alike.
