Regression, a Friendly Guide (Paperback)

Awaiting publication


Regression, a Friendly Guide teaches you to build, assess, and interpret regression models. In each chapter, new modelling paradigms are introduced with simple language and illustrative examples. You'll steadily build up your theoretical understanding until you can intuitively interpret abstract regression models and their underlying mathematics.

Start off by building linear and logistic regression models with one or more variables, and master regression for count models. Learn to use simulation methods to assess your models, and discover advanced techniques like generalized additive models, penalty methods, and quantile regression. You'll even learn how to interpret your models and findings for non-technical coworkers, to ensure your whole organization is making reliable decisions driven by accurate analysis.

About the Technology

Regression models are tools for exploring relationships in data. They see heavy use in data science for making predictions, measuring growth, and analyzing probabilities. A proper understanding of how regression models work will ensure you can make and defend sound data-driven decisions.
