An R and S-Plus Companion to Applied Regression

Front Cover
SAGE, Jun 5, 2002 - Mathematics - 312 pages

"This book fits right into a needed niche: rigorous enough to give full explanation of the power of the S language, yet accessible enough to assign to social science graduate students without fear of intimidation. It is a tremendous balance of applied statistical "firepower" and thoughtful explanation. It meets all of the important mechanical needs: each example is given in detail, code and data are freely available, and the nuances of models are given rather than just the bare essentials. It also meets some important theoretical needs: linear models, categorical data analysis, an introduction to applying GLMs, a discussion of model diagnostics, and useful instructions on writing customized functions. "

About the author (2002)

John Fox is the Senator William McMaster Professor of Social Statistics in the Sociology Department of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Professor Fox earned a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Michigan in 1972. He has delivered numerous lectures and workshops on statistical topics, at such places as the summer program of the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research, the annual meetings of the American Sociological Association, and the Oxford Spring School in Quantitative Methods for Social Research. He has written many articles on statistics, sociology, and social psychology, and is the author of several books on statistics, including most recently Applied Regression Analysis and Generalized Linear Models, Second Edition (Sage, 2008) and A Mathematical Primer for Social Statistics (Sage, 2009), and (with Sanford Weisberg) An R Companion to Applied Regression, Second Edition (Sage, 2011). Professor Fox is an active contributor to the R Project for Statistical Computing and is a member of the R Foundation. His work on this book was partly supported by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada..
