Summary

APPLIED REGRESSION ANALYSIS focuses on the application of regression to real data and examples while employing commercial statistical and spreadsheet software. Designed for both business/economics undergraduates and MBAs, this text provides all of the core regression topics as well as optional topics including ANOVA, Time Series Forecasting, and Discriminant Analysis. While only a prior introductory statistics course is required, a review of all necessary basic statistics is provided in chapter 2. The text emphasizes the importance of understanding the assumptions of the regression model, knowing how to validate a selected model for these assumptions, knowing when and how regression might be useful in a business setting, and understanding and interpreting output from statistical packages and spreadsheets.

New to the Edition

  • A new chapter 11, "Forecasting Methods for Time Series Data," is included in addition to the time series presentation provided in context in selected chapters throughout the book.
  • Chapters now feature generic high-resolution graphics and output within the chapters. All software specific output, graphics and instructions now appear at the conclusion of each chapter. This new organization is designed to accommodate a broad range of computing preferences.
  • SAS output and instruction are now included (in addition to MINITAB and Excel).
  • Many new exercises and updated data are included in the 4th edition.


Features

  • Most data comes from actual business problems culled from journals and popular business publications.
  • Time Series models are introduced after their respective cross-sectional models throughout the text.
  • SAS, MINITAB, and Excel procedures used to perform analyses are presented in a "Using a Computer" section at the end of each chapter. In addition, there is a brief introduction to each of these programs in Appendix C.
