Publication data: Addison Wesley Publishing Co., 1973. Reprinted 1992: Wiley ISBN 0471574287 Description The first complete analysis of Bayesian Inference for many statistical problems. Importance: Includes a large body of research on Bayesian analysis for outlier problems, variance components, linear models and multivariate statistics.
This case provides an analysis of the O-ring data from the Challenger Disaster and argues for a launch scrub. Suitable for courses in applied statistics, material, and general engineering levels 1-4.Analysis. Complete the following steps to use the SPSS data file (Faculty Comments Dataset.sav) to do some initial analyses of the data: Open the SPSS data file. In DATA VIEW, notice that columns 1 and 2 contain the comments that were collected. Also note that column 2 contains a place to enter the numerical code for each theme into which that comment would fall. Columns 3-5 contain each.SAGE Video Bringing teaching, learning and research to life. SAGE Books The ultimate social sciences digital library.

CQ Press Your definitive resource for politics, policy and people.
The purpose of this page is to provide resources in the rapidly growing area of computational statistics and probability for decision making under uncertainties. Here you can find a collection of teaching and research resources on various topics related to computational statistics and probability useful in probabilistic modeling processes.Read More
This can be accomplished in an amazingly large number of ways: principal component analysis, maximum likelihood analysis, expectations maximization analysis. One can use a two-step approach by getting first the factors and then the exposures, simultaneously estimate both factors and exposures, or turn the problem on its head in the imaginative approach taken by Connor and Korajczyk (1988). We.Read More
The author introduces the foundations of longitudinal and panel data analysis at a level suitable for quantitatively oriented graduate social science students as well as individual researchers. He emphasizes mathematical and statistical fundamentals but also describes substantive applications from across the social sciences, showing the breadth and scope that these models enjoy. The.Read More

These data were analysed by means of structural equation modelling (SEM) analysis. All six school climate factors were related to student wellbeing. These relations were primarily indirect (with the exception of teacher support, school connectedness and affirming diversity which had a direct influence), mediated through the students’ sense of ethnic and moral identity, resilience and life.Read More
Some recent evidence on the shape of the F( ) function and the performance of a specification like is provided in Fig. 1, which shows actual age-earnings profiles for men and women using pooled samples from the 1994, 1995, 1996 March Current Population Surveys. The data represent mean log hourly earnings by single year of age for individuals with 10, 12 and 16 years of education.Read More
This paper is concerned with the application to monetary and fiscal policy analysis of a recently developed second-order continuous time macroeconometric model of the United Kingdom.Read More
Here the analysis is derived ultimately from the model of Fisher (1930) that underpins the neo-Darwinian synthesis and that such figures as Dawkins rely upon in their arguments, meaning that even the opponents of multi-level selection cannot simply rule it out a priori, but must contest the possibility on empirical grounds with regard to certain key parameters. At this point we note the link.Read More
The Cox Proportional Hazard (CPH) model, proposed in 1972 is currently the preferred method for the analysis of censored data from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational studies of time to event outcomes. CPH circumvents the statistical complications created by censoring of survival data, by working in the probability rather than the time domain and calculates Hazard Ratios (HR.Read More
Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the breast. Cancer starts when cells begin to grow out of control. (To learn more about how cancers start and spread, see What Is Cancer?. Breast cancer cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump.Read More
