This successful book, now available in paperback, provides academics and researchers with a clear set of prescriptions for estimating, testing and probing interactions in regression models. Including the latest research in the area, such as Fuller's work on the corrected/constrained estimator, the book is appropriate for anyone who uses multiple regression to estimate models, or for those enrolled in courses on multivariate statistics.
