Regression Analysis by Example, Fourth Edition has been expanded and thoroughly updated to reflect recent advances in the field. The emphasis continues to be on exploratory data analysis rather than statistical theory. The book offers in-depth treatment of regression diagnostics, transformation, multicollinearity, logistic regression, and robust regression.
This new edition features the following enhancements: Chapter 12, Logistic Regression, is expanded to reflect the increased use of the logit models in statistical analysis A new chapter entitled Further Topics discusses advanced areas of regression analysis Reorganized, expanded, and upgraded exercises appear at the end of each chapter A fully integrated Web page provides data sets Numerous graphical displays highlight the significance of visual appeal Regression Analysis by Example, Fourth Edition is suitable for anyone with an understanding of elementary statistics.
Methods of regression analysis are clearly demonstrated, and examples containing the types of irregularities commonly encountered in the real world are provided.
Each example isolates one or two techniques and features detailed discussions of the techniques themselves, the required assumptions, and the evaluated success of each technique. The methods described throughout the book can be carried out with most of the currently available statistical software packages, such as the software package R.
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department. Reviews "This book is now well established as an excellent source of examples for regression analysis. It has been and still is readily readable and understandable to those with a minimum of data analytic experience It is an excellent source of information and example analyses concerning regression modeling for the beginning to moderately trained data analyst.

The linearity assumption can best be tested with scatter plots, the following two examples depict two cases, where no and little linearity is present. Secondly, the linear regression analysis requires all variables to be multivariate normal. This assumption can best be checked with a histogram or a Q-Q-Plot.
Normality can be checked with a goodness of fit test, e.
When the data is not normally distributed a non-linear transformation e. Thirdly, linear regression assumes that there is little or no multicollinearity in the data. Multicollinearity occurs when the independent variables are too highly correlated with each other.
If multicollinearity is found in the data, centering the data that is deducting the mean of the variable from each score might help to solve the problem. However, the simplest way to address the problem is to remove independent variables with high VIF values. Fourth, linear regression analysis requires that there is little or no autocorrelation in the data.
Autocorrelation occurs when the residuals are not independent from each other. For instance, this typically occurs in stock prices, where the price is not independent from the previous price.
