The Multivariate Social Scientist Introductory Statistics Using Generalized Linear Models by Graeme Hutcheson, Nick Sofroniou

The Multivariate Social Scientist Introductory Statistics Using Generalized Linear Models



The Multivariate Social Scientist Introductory Statistics Using Generalized Linear Models by Graeme Hutcheson, Nick Sofroniou

Starting from simple hypothesis testing and then moving towards model-building, this valuable book takes readers through the basics of multivariate analysis including: which tests to use on which data; how to run analyses in SPSS for Windows and GLIM4; how to interpret results; and how to report and present the reports appropriately. Using a unified conceptual framework (based around the Generalized Linear Model) the authors explain the commonalities and relationships between methods that include both the analysis of categorical and continuous data.


The book combines a sound and clear exposition of GLMs with a wealth of practical tips. Even for those already familiar with most of the techniques covered it would be an excellent refresher course. -- Geoff. Der `I learnt a lot from this book, which is very clear and carefully explains a wide range of multivariate techniques, basing them all on a consistent explanatory framework. It will be invaluable for social scientists wanting to progress beyond an introductory level of statistics' - Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey

`A good introduction to ordinary regression, logistic regression, and loglinear models for the analysis of categorical frequency data....A nice feature of the book and one that social scientists will find very useful is the detailed listing of computer codes for the implementation of these models within the SPSS and GLIM software' - Zentralblatt MATH
