About this site

This site supports the teaching of statistics, particularly when using the text Primer of Applied Regression and Analysis of Variance, 2nd edition, written by Stanton A. Glantz and Bryan K. Slinker, which was published in 2001 by McGraw-Hill.   This site provides downloads of data files and software control files and macros.  Also, errors discovered between printings are listed on this site.

Someday, you will find other data sets that are not published in the book.  Finally, there are links to other web-based resources for statistics and the teaching of statistics.  The authors intend this site to serve as a resource for the teaching of statistics.  If you have a data set that you think would form the basis of a good example, homework problem, or exam question in the areas of linear regression, analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, nonlinear regression, or logistic regression, you may contribute it for posting below by sending it, along with an explanatory paragraph about the problem (including literature citation if applicable) and a note about the organization of the data set, to Bryan who will review it and post it with some explanatory material and an acknowlegement of you as the source.

Errata

Equation  7.19           This equation (p. 330) for W (the Welch statistic) contains errors in both the
                                    numerator and denominator.

                                    The incorrect equation reads:

                                                         

                                    whereas the correct equation is:

                                                         

                                              These equations differ in both the numerator and denominator, where all occurrences of the
                                              variable k should be replaced by t.

          Page 496                     The third equation on p. 496

                                                                  

                                              is incorrect; specifically the left hand term should be jk, not  ij, such that the correct
                                              equation is

                                                                  

         
Equation  9.22           The equation (p. 497) should read.

                                                                  

                                    (note the change from 21 to 12 for the second term on the left hand side of the equation)

Page 497                     The sentence before Eq. 9.23 is incorrect.  It should read (changes in bold, black):

                                               Likewise, to compare two different means across different levels of
                                               factor A within a given level of factor B (e.g., b1), we examine the contrast

Equation  9.23           The equation (p. 497) should read.

                                                        
                                    (note the change from 12 to 21 for the second term on the left hand side of the equation)

Equation  9.24           The equation (p. 497) should read.

                                                        

                                    (note the change from ("$)12 to ("$)22 for the last  term on the right  hand side of the
                                     equation)

Equation  9.28           The equation (p. 500) for MSpool, AB is correct; however, the associated degrees of
                                    freedom should read DFpool, AB rather than DFpool, B.

Problem 3.3              The answer (p. 888) is incorrect.  The incorrect answer prints the regression equation as

                                                       
                                    whereas the correct regression equation is

                                                       

Problem 3.16               The answer (p. 893) is incorrect.  The incorrect answer prints the confidence interval
                                    as -26.3 to 0.7,  whereas the correct confidence interval is -26.3 to 1.7.

Problem 8.16               The question (p. 414) contains a typographical error:  on line 5, "throught" should be
                                    "thought.".
