Multiple Regression in Practice



May 1985 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Berry and Feldman provide a systematic treatment of many of the major problems encountered in using regression analysis. The authors discuss: the consequences of violating the assumptions of the regression model; procedures for detecting when such violations occur; and strategies for dealing with these problems when they arise. The monograph was written without the use of matrix algebra, and numerous examples are provided from political science, sociology, and economics.
