Regression With Social Data Modeling Continuous and Limited Response Variables Synopsis

An accessible introduction to the use of regression analysis in the social sciences Regression with Social Data: Modeling Continuous and Limited Response Variables represents the most complete and fully integrated coverage of regression modeling currently available for graduate-level behavioral science students and practitioners. Covering techniques that span the full spectrum of levels of measurement for both continuous and limited response variables, and using examples taken from such disciplines as sociology, psychology, political science, and public health, the author succeeds in demystifying an academically rigorous subject and making it accessible to a wider audience. Content includes coverage of: Logit, probit, scobit, truncated, and censored regressionsMultiple regression with ANOVA and ANCOVA modelsBinary and multinomial response modelsPoisson, negative binomial, and other regression models for event-count dataSurvival analysis using multistate, multiepisode, and interval-censored survival models Concepts are reinforced throughout with numerous chapter problems, exercises, and real data sets. Step-by-step solutions plus an appendix of mathematical tutorials make even complex problems accessible to readers with only moderate math skills. The book s logical flow, wide applicability, and uniquely comprehensive coverage make it both an ideal text for a variety of graduate course settings and a useful reference for practicing researchers in the field.

Regression With Social Data Modeling Continuous and Limited Response Variables Press Reviews

?There are many things to like about the DeMaris text. The first is the coverage. The book?s subtitle tells the story here: both continuous and limited response variables are treated. This book is intended to serve as a text for intermediate-level social science graduate courses on regression and as a reference book for practicing researchers. I recommend it for both purposes. ( Sociological Methods & Research, 2009) I would have left 'social data' out of the title of this excellent book.... The book has value for any statistician for its inclusion of all possible types of response measurement in a single regression textbook. (Technometrics, August 2005) Regression with Social Data includes features desirable of a textbook for classroom use (e.g., datasets, 275 end-of-chapter exercises with partial solutions) but also has the depth and sophistication of a reference book. As a reference book, it is useful to anyone in statistical consulting or social science research. (The American Statistician, May 2006)
