Regression Modeling Strategies: With Applications to Linear Models, Logistic and Ordinal Regression, and Survival Analysis (Springer Series in Statistics)

Regression Modeling Strategies: With Applications to Linear Models, Logistic and Ordinal Regression, and Survival Analysis (Springer Series in Statistics) Lowest new price: $49.15
Lowest used price: $60.63
List price: $89.99
Author: Frank E. Harrell Jr.
Brand: Springer

This highly anticipated second edition features new chapters and sections, 225 new references, and comprehensive R software. In keeping with the previous edition, this book is about the art and science of data analysis and predictive modelling, which entails choosing and using multiple tools. Instead of presenting isolated techniques, this text emphasises problem solving strategies that address the many issues arising when developing multi-variable models using real data and not standard textbook examples. 

Regression Modelling Strategies presents full-scale case studies of non-trivial data-sets instead of over-simplified illustrations of each method. These case studies use freely available R functions that make the multiple imputation, model building, validation and interpretation tasks described in the book relatively easy to do. Most of the methods in this text apply to all regression models, but special emphasis is given to multiple regression using generalised least squares for longitudinal data, the binary logistic model, models for ordinal responses, parametric survival regression models and the Cox semi parametric survival model. A new emphasis is given to the robust analysis of continuous dependent variables using ordinal regression.

As in the first edition, this text is intended for Masters' or PhD. level graduate students who have had a general introductory probability and statistics course and who are well versed in ordinary multiple regression and intermediate algebra. The book will also serve as a reference for data analysts and statistical methodologists, as it contains an up-to-date survey and bibliography of modern statistical modelling techniques.

Fundamentals of Clinical Trials

Fundamentals of Clinical Trials Lowest new price: $42.13
Lowest used price: $40.00
List price: $79.99
Author: Lawrence M. Friedman

This is the fifth edition of a very successful textbook on clinical trials methodology, written by recognized leaders who have long and extensive experience in all areas of clinical trials. The three authors of the first four editions have been joined by two others who add great expertise. A chapter on regulatory issues has been included and the chapter on data monitoring has been split into two and expanded. Many contemporary clinical trial examples have been added. There is much new material on adverse events, adherence, issues in analysis, electronic data, data sharing and international trials.

This book is intended for the clinical researcher who is interested in designing a clinical trial and developing a protocol. It is also of value to researchers and practitioners who must critically evaluate the literature of published clinical trials and assess the merits of each trial and the implications for the care and treatment of patients. The authors use numerous examples of published clinical trials to illustrate the fundamentals.

The text is organized sequentially from defining the question to trial closeout. One chapter is devoted to each of the critical areas to aid the clinical trial researcher. These areas include pre-specifying the scientific questions to be tested and appropriate outcome measures, determining the organizational structure, estimating an adequate sample size, specifying the randomization procedure, implementing the intervention and visit schedules for participant evaluation, establishing an interim data and safety monitoring plan, detailing the final analysis plan and reporting the trial results according to the pre-specified objectives.

Although a basic introductory statistics course is helpful in maximizing the benefit of this book, a researcher or practitioner with limited statistical background would still find most if not all the chapters understandable and helpful. While the technical material has been kept to a minimum, the statistician may still find the principles and fundamentals presented in this text useful.

List price: $220.99
Author: David S. Moore
Brand: imusti

David Moore’s data analysis (conceptual) approach, which revolutionized the introductory statistics textbook, moves students away from formulas and number-crunching, focusing instead on how working statisticians in a variety of fields collect and analyze data, and use the results to tackle real-world problems.



The clear, direct way of emphasizing the course’s relevance and confronting students’ math anxieties is at the heart of the bestselling The Basic Practice of Statistics (BPS). It is also the ideal approach for taking full advantage of the powerful statistical tools and interactive learning features in this new edition’s text/media package. Now more than ever, BPS is ready to help students move from reading about statistical practice to practicing statistics themselves.

A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Fifth Edition

A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Fifth Edition Lowest new price: $59.36
Lowest used price: $46.34
List price: $83.95
Author: Alan C. Acock
Brand: imusti

Alan C. Acock's A Gentle Introduction to Stata, Fifth Edition,
is aimed at new Stata users who want to become proficient in Stata.
After reading this introductory text, new users will be able not only
to use Stata well but also to learn new aspects of Stata.

Acock assumes that the user is not familiar with any statistical
software. This assumption of a blank slate is central to the structure
and contents of the book. Acock starts with the basics; for example,
the portion of the book that deals with data management begins with a
careful and detailed example of turning survey data on paper into a
Stata-ready dataset on the computer. When explaining how to go about
basic exploratory statistical procedures, Acock includes notes that
will help the reader develop good work habits. This mixture of
explaining good Stata habits and good statistical habits continues
throughout the book.

Acock is quite careful to teach the reader all aspects of using Stata.
He covers data management, good work habits (including the use of
basic do-files), basic exploratory statistics (including graphical
displays), and analyses using the standard array of basic statistical
tools (correlation, linear and logistic regression, and parametric and
nonparametric tests of location and dispersion). He also successfully
introduces some more advanced topics such as multiple imputation and
structural equation modeling in a very approachable manner. Acock
teaches Stata commands by using the menus and dialog boxes while still
stressing the value of do-files. In this way, he ensures that all
types of users can build good work habits. Each chapter has exercises
that the motivated reader can use to reinforce the material.

The tone of the book is friendly and conversational without ever being
glib or condescending. Important asides and notes about terminology
are set off in boxes, which makes the text easy to read without any
convoluted twists or forward-referencing. Rather than splitting topics
by their Stata implementation, Acock arranges the topics as they would
appear in a basic statistics textbook; graphics and postestimation are
woven into the material in a natural fashion. Real datasets, such as
the General Social Surveys from 2002 and 2006, are used
throughout the book.

The focus of the book is especially helpful for those in the
behavioral and social sciences because the presentation of basic
statistical modeling is supplemented with discussions of effect sizes
and standardized coefficients. Various selection criteria, such as
semipartial correlations, are discussed for model selection. Acock
also covers a variety of commands available for evaluating reliability
and validity of measurements.

The fifth edition of the book includes two new chapters that cover
multilevel modeling and item response theory (IRT) models. The
multilevel modeling chapter demonstrates how to fit linear multilevel
models using the mixed command. Acock discusses models with
both random intercepts and random coefficients, and he provides a
variety of examples that apply these models to longitudinal data. The
IRT chapter introduces the use of IRT models for evaluating a set of
items designed to measure a specific trait such as an attitude, value,
or a belief. Acock shows how to use the irt suite of commands,
which are new in Stata 14, to fit IRT models and to graph the results.
In addition, he presents a measure of reliability that can be computed
when using IRT.
