Applied regression : an introduction by Michael S Lewis-Beck( )

81 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for its readability and clarity, this Second Edition of the best-selling Applied Regression provides an accessible introduction to regression analysis for social scientists and other professionals who want to model quantitative data. After covering the basic idea of fitting a straight line to a scatter of data points, the text uses clear language to explain both the mathematics and assumptions behind the simple linear regression model. The authors then cover more specialized subjects of regression analysis, such as multiple regression, measures of model fit, analysis of residuals, interaction effects, multicollinearity, and prediction. Throughout the text, graphical and applied examples help explain and demonstrate the power and broad applicability of regression analysis for answering scientific questions.--
Data analysis : an introduction by Michael S Lewis-Beck( )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written at a level appropriate for the advanced undergraduate course on data analysis, this accessible volume introduces the reader to the "art" of data analysis from data-gathering to multiple regression in which a dependent variable is influenced by several independent variables. The book focuses on the interpretation of a statistical result, in particular those that come from nonexperimental social research. Using a consistent data set throughout the book in order to illustrate the various analytic techniques, the author covers such topics as univariate statistics, measures of association, the statistical significance of the relationship between two variables, and simple regression where the dependent variable is influenced by a single independent variable. The last chapter offers analysis recommendations. Data Analysis will provide social science researchers with the tools to select and evaluate statistical tests appropriate for their particular research question."--Publisher's description
Economic conditions and electoral outcomes : the United States and Western Europe by Heinz Eulau( )

14 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does economics influence elections? How does such influence work? Under what conditions is it more or less likely to occur? These appear to be simple questions, but answering them is difficult. And they may appear to be trivial questions to those who contend that elections in the western democracies are, at best, placebos that disguise the real dynamics of power in societies still mostly characterized by the capitalist mode of production, even if the economy is directed by government. This is an argument we do not propose to address. We do believe that free, popular elections matter and that they make a difference precisely because, at periodic intervals, they set the limits or constraints within which capitalist as well as anticapitalist elites pursue their economic and political goals. To oppose the voice of the people to the people's manipulation by elites, it seems to us, creates an unnecessary dualism. This dualism is not useful because it cannot come to grips with the question of how and why popular electorates respond as they do to more or less elite-managed economies, and how and why elites, in turn, take account of or are responsive to whatever messages they may receive from the electorate
How France votes( )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How France Votes takes as context the presidential election of 1995, which saw the triumph of Gaullist Jacques Chirac, and the legislative elections of 1997, which saw Chirac's political defeat and the emergence of Socialist Lionel Jospin as the prime minister. How did this reversal happen, and why? Examining the campaign issues and party strategies, the enduring sociology of the French electorate, and the consequences of Fifth Republic constitutional rules and institutions, How France Votes assures that readers finding themselves in a Paris cafe might expect to hold their own in a political debate over not only the latest French election, but also the next one to come."--Jacket
The Sage encyclopedia of social science research methods by Michael S Lewis-Beck( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first encyclopedia to cover inclusively both quantitative and qualitative research approaches, this set provides clear explanations of 1,000 methodologies, avoiding mathematical equations when possible with liberal cross-referencing and bibliographies. Each volume includes a list of works cited, and the third contains a comprehensive index and lists of person names, organizations, books, tests, software, major concepts, surveys, and methodologies."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005
The American voter revisited by Michael S Lewis-Beck( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today we are politically polarized as never before. The presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 will be remembered as two of the most contentious political events in American history. Yet despite the recent election upheaval, The American Voter Revisited discovers that voter behavior has been remarkably consistent over the last half century. And if the authors are correct in their predictions, 2008 will show just how reliably the American voter weighs in, election after election. The American Voter Revisited re-creates the outstanding 1960 classic The American Voter--which was based on the presidential elections of 1952 and 1956--following the same format, theory, and mode of analysis as the original. In this new volume, the authors test the ideas and methods of the original against presidential election surveys from 2000 and 2004. Surprisingly, the contemporary American voter is found to behave politically much like voters of the 1950s."--Page 4 of cover

The French voter : before and after the 2002 elections by Michael S Lewis-Beck( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"French elections are often considered to be exotic, with many extreme parties left and right manoeuvring to produce unpredictable, explosive outcomes. The 2002 presidential election, when right-wing National Front extremist Jean-Marie Le Pen beat Socialist Prime Minister Lionel Jospin in the first round of the presidential contest is the most recent contest in support of that view. However, as this book shows, the French voter is a political animal that can be explained, despite its sometimes exotic colouring. Traditional factors, such as region, religion, class, and enduring partisan ties do much to make the French voter predictable, regardless of the special circumstances of a particular national election

The study of voting behavior remains a vibrant sub-discipline of political science.

The first five cover the principal theoretical paradigms, establishing the state of the art in their conceptualization and application, and followed by chapters on their specific challenges and innovative applications in contemporary voting studies. The remaining three parts explore elements of the voting process to understand their different effects on vote outcomes. The SAGE Handbook of Electoral Behaviour is an essential benchmark publication for advanced students, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of politics, sociology, psychology, and research methods.--
