Multiple Regression with Discrete Dependent Variables

John G. Orme and Terri Combs-Orme

Pocket Guide to Social Work Research Methods

Most social work researchers are familiar with linear regression, which is fairly straightforward to conduct, interpret, and present. However, linear regression is not appropriate for the discrete dependent variables frequently studied by the profession. This book presents methods for dichotomous, polytomous, ordinal, and count variables, with particular emphasis on interpreting and presenting results.
