Spline Regression Models



December 2001 | 80 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Spline Regression Models shows the nuts-and-bolts of using dummy variables to formulate and estimate various spline regression models. For some researchers this will involve situations where the number and location of the spline knots are known in advance, while others will need to determine the number and location of spline knots as part of the estimation process. Through the use of a number of straightforward examples, the authors will show readers how to work with both types of spline knot situations as well as offering practical, down-to-earth information on estimating splines.
 
1. General Introduction
 
2. Introduction to Spline Models
 
3. Splines with Known Knot Locations
 
4. Splines with Unknown Knot Locations
 
5. Splines with an Unknown Number of Knots
 
6. Summary and Conclusions

"I would recommend this book as a nice and easy-to-read introduction to spline models."

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
