Multivariate Regression: Additional Topics

  • David Weisburd

In the previous chapter we extended the bivariate regression approach by showing how we could include multiple independent variables simultaneously in a single model. We illustrated how we incorporate variables measured not only at the interval level of measurement, but also nominal and ordinal independent variables, into a regression model. While the models we have examined so far allow us to approximate linear relationships between various independent variables and the dependent variable, in the real world we are sometimes confronted with more complex research questions that require us to make additional modifications to our model.
