From the preface: In this 4th edition the chapter on logistic regression (Ch. 12) has been cosiderably expanded. This reflects the increased use of logit models in statistical analysis. In addition to binary logistic regression we have now included a discussion of multinomial logistic regression. This extends the application of logistic regression to more diverse situations. The categories in some multinomials are ordered for example in attitude surveys. We also discuss the application of logistic models to ordered response variables. A new chapter, Further topics, has also been added in this edition. This chapter is intended as an introduction to more advanced studies of regression analysis. The topics discussed here are generalized linear models and robust regression.
