The authors have provided beginners with a background to the frequently-used technique of linear regression. It is not intended to be a substitute for a course or textbook in statistics, but rather a stop-gap for students who encounter empirical work before undertaking a statistics course. It provides a heuristic explanation of the procedures and terms used in regression analysis and has been written at the most elementary level.

About the Author:

Dr. Larry Schroeder, Professor of Public Administration Maxwell Professor of Teaching Excellence, and Senior Research Associate in the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University is a public finance economist with primary interest in state and local public finance and financial management. He has conducted research on a variety of state and local government fiscal issues both in the U.S. and abroad. Much of his current research is directed at public finance issues arising in developing and transition economies. He is particularly interested in problems associated with financing the construction and maintenance of public infrastructure in these environments as well as the broader issues of decentralization, intergovernmental fiscal relations, and the effects of institutional arrangements on the provision of public services. He is the co-author of several books and has written a large number of articles addressing these subjects. Professor Schroeder has consulted with and led policy research projects sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development, the World Bank, and the United Nations Capital Development Fund in numerous countries, especially in South and Southeast Asia, but also in Africa and Eastern Europe. In 1998-99 he was a Visiting Professor at Universiti Sains Malaysia in Penang Malaysia and was a Visiting Research Fellow at the National College of Public Administration and Governance at the University of the Philippines (Diliman Campus) in Quezon City, Philippines in 2005-06. Professor Schroeder earned his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin in 1971. During the early 1970s he was on the economics faculty at Georgia State University. In 1977 he joined the Departments of Public Administration and Economics at the Maxwell School, Syracuse University and served here until 1994 when he was a Professor of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University. He rejoined The Maxwell School faculty in 1998.

Review:

"This is an excellent update; a clear and accessible introduction to a complex, yet very important, statistical method: regression analysis. The book can serve as a perfect supplement or stand-alone book in introductory social statistics courses." (Grigoris Argeros)

"Understanding Regression Analysis provides students at all levels a foundational understanding of multiple linear regression analysis through intuitive explanations and interdisciplinary examples aimed at elucidating concepts, approaches, and interpretations." (Andrea Hetling)

"This monograph provides a clear and concise introduction to regression analysis concepts and procedures, with a problem-solving approach toward addressing common maladies of regression modeling." (Ross E. Burkhart)

"The authors do a top-notch job of competently presenting a plethora of topics regarding regression analysis." (Wyatt Brown)
