A valuable overview of the most important ideas and results in statistical modeling

Written by a highly-experienced author, Foundations of Linear and Generalized Linear Models is a clear and comprehensive guide to the key concepts and results of linearstatistical models. The book presents a broad, in-depth overview of the most commonly usedstatistical models by discussing the theory underlying the models, R software applications,and examples with crafted models to elucidate key ideas and promote practical modelbuilding.

The book begins by illustrating the fundamentals of linear models, such as how the model-fitting projects the data onto a model vector subspace and how orthogonal decompositions of the data yield information about the effects of explanatory variables. Subsequently, the book covers the most popular generalized linear models, which include binomial and multinomial logistic regression for categorical data, and Poisson and negative binomial loglinear models for count data. Focusing on the theoretical underpinnings of these models, Foundations ofLinear and Generalized Linear Models also features:

An introduction to quasi-likelihood methods that require weaker distributional assumptions, such as generalized estimating equation methodsAn overview of linear mixed models and generalized linear mixed models with random effects for clustered correlated data, Bayesian modeling, and extensions to handle problematic cases such as high dimensional problemsNumerous examples that use R software for all text data analysesMore than 400 exercises for readers to practice and extend the theory, methods, and data analysisA supplementary website with datasets for the examples and exercisesAn invaluable textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students in statistics and biostatistics courses, Foundations of Linear and Generalized Linear Models is also an excellent reference for practicing statisticians and biostatisticians, as well as anyone who is interested in learning about the most important statistical models for analyzing data.


Praise for the First Edition

". . . [this book] should be on the shelf of everyone interestedin . . . longitudinal data analysis."
—Journal of the American Statistical Association

Features newly developed topics and applications of theanalysis of longitudinal data

Applied Longitudinal Analysis, Second Edition presentsmodern methods for analyzing data from longitudinal studies and nowfeatures the latest state-of-the-art techniques. The bookemphasizes practical, rather than theoretical, aspects of methodsfor the analysis of diverse types of longitudinal data that can beapplied across various fields of study, from the health and medicalsciences to the social and behavioral sciences.

The authors incorporate their extensive academic and researchexperience along with various updates that have been made inresponse to reader feedback. The Second Edition features six newlyadded chapters that explore topics currently evolving in the field,including:

Fixed effects and mixed effects modelsMarginal models and generalized estimating equationsApproximate methods for generalized linear mixed effectsmodelsMultiple imputation and inverse probability weightedmethodsSmoothing methods for longitudinal dataSample size and power

Each chapter presents methods in the setting of applications todata sets drawn from the health sciences. New problem sets havebeen added to many chapters, and a related website features sampleprograms and computer output using SAS, Stata, and R, as well asdata sets and supplemental slides to facilitate a completeunderstanding of the material.

With its strong emphasis on multidisciplinary applications andthe interpretation of results, Applied LongitudinalAnalysis, Second Edition is an excellent book for courses onstatistics in the health and medical sciences at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. The book also serves as avaluable reference for researchers and professionals in themedical, public health, and pharmaceutical fields as well as thosein social and behavioral sciences who would like to learn moreabout analyzing longitudinal data.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to methods and models for categorical data analysis and their applications in social science research. An explicit aim of the book is to integrate the transformational and the latent variable approach, two diverse but complementary traditions dealing with the analysis of categorical data. This is the first introductory text to cover models and methods for discrete dependent variables, cross-classifications, and longitudinal data in a rigorous, yet accessible, manner in a single volume.The second edition of this book includes new material on multilevel models for categorical data. Several chapters have undergone extensive revisions and extensions to include new applications and examples. Highlights of the 2nd edition include a detailed discussion of classical and Bayesian estimation techniques for hierarchical/multilevel models, extensive coverage of discrete-time hazard models and Cox regression models, and methods for evaluating and accommodating departures from model assumptions. The accompanying website contains programming scripts to replicate each example using various statistical packages, which has proven to be an invaluable resource for instructors, students, and researchers. This book presents the essential methods and models that form the core of contemporary social statistics. The book covers a remarkable range of models that have applications in sociology, demography, psychometrics, econometrics, political science, biostatistics, and other fields. It will be especially useful as a graduate textbook for students in advanced social statistics courses and as a reference book for applied researchers.
