Applied Logistic Regression Analysis by Scott Menard


Applied Logistic Regression Analysis by Scott Menard

The focus in this Second Edition is on logistic regression models for individual level (but aggregate or grouped) data. Multiple cases for each possible combination of values of the predictors are considered in detail and examples using SAS and SPSS included. New to this edition: * More detailed consideration of grouped as opposed to casewise data throughout the book * Updated discussion of the properties and appropriate use of goodness of fit measures, R2 analogues, and indices of predictive efficiency * Discussion of the misuse of odds ratios to represent risk ratios, and of overdispersion and underdispersion for grouped data * Updated coverage of unordered and ordered polytomous logistic regression models.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
