A variety of ideas and methods of regression analysis are explored with the aid of realistic examples that highlight the analysis of data and include irregularities similar to those encountered in practice. Recent advances in regression diagnostics are covered with emphasis on plots such as component plus residual, added variable, sequence, along with index plots for leverage and function. The authors utilize standard and some not so standard summary statistics on the basis of their intuitive appeal to demonstrate concepts. The majority of analyses described are available in software packages on the market today.
