This classic text on multiple regression is noted for its non-mathematical, applied, and data-analytic approach. Readers profit from its verbal-conceptual exposition and frequent use of examples. The applied emphasis provides clear illustrations of the principles and provides worked examples of the types of applications that are possible. Researchers learn how to specify regression models that directly address their research questions. An overview of the fundamental ideas of multiple regression and a review of bivariate correlation and regression and other elementary statistical concepts provide a strong foundation for a solid understanding of the rest of the text. The third edition…

Stephen G. West (PhD, University of Texas at Austin) is Professor of Quantitative and Social Psychology at the University of Arizona. His current quantitative research interests include field research methods, structural equation modeling, multiple regression analysis, mediational analysis, graphics and exploratory data analysis, and longitudinal data analysis. Current social psychology research interests include personality research, applied social, prevention-related issues in health, mental health. He is the editor ofnbsp; Psychological Methods, published by APA.

Leona S. Aiken (PhD, Purdue University)nbsp;is Professor and Chair of Social and Quantitative Psychology at Arizona State University. Her research interests include both quantitative methods and health psychology. In quantitative methods, she is known for her work in continuous variable interactions in multiple regression.nbsp;She is also interested in the use of design approaches and mediational analysis to untangle the effects of individual components in multi-component interventions. In health psychology, she is interested in adoption of health protective behaviors across the life span, particularly among women, both from the perspectives of psychosocial models of the putative…
