Regression analysis is a core component of the statistics classes required of millions of students. Regression analysis has numerous practical applications, such as predicting sales, finding risk factors for a disease, or anticipating demand for goods at a given price, but the math is challenging, and many struggle with the course. As with all titles in the best-selling Manga Guide series, The Manga Guide to Regression Analysis combines comics with real-world examples to teach readers how to use regression analysis to analyze data and make predictions. The book begins with a review of inverse functions, matrix algebra, and differential calculus, then goes on to explain single, multiple and logistic regression analysis. Readers also learn hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, F and Chi-squared distributions, significance levels, as well as how to use Microsoft Excel for calculations. Co-published with Tokyo-based technical publisher Ohmsha, this is the newest title in the popular Manga Guide series, with over 500,000 copies sold worldwide.
