Predictive modeling involves the use of data to forecast future events. It relies on capturing relationships between explanatory variables and the predicted variables from past occurrences and exploiting this to predict future outcomes. Forecasting future financial events is a core actuarial skill - actuaries routinely apply predictive-modeling techniques in insurance and other risk-management applications. This book is for actuaries and other financial analysts who are developing their expertise in statistics and wish to become familiar with concrete examples of predictive modeling. The book also addresses the needs of more seasoned practising analysts who would like an overview of advanced statistical topics that are particularly relevant in actuarial practice. Predictive Modeling Applications in Actuarial Science emphasizes lifelong learning by developing tools in an insurance context, providing the relevant actuarial applications, and introducing advanced statistical techniques that can be used by analysts to gain a competitive advantage in situations with complex data.

Logistic Regression Models for Ordinal Response Variables provides applied researchers in the social, educational, and behavioral sciences with an accessible and comprehensive coverage of analyses for ordinal outcomes. The content builds on a review of logistic regression, and extends to details of the cumulative (proportional) odds, continuation ratio, and adjacent category models for ordinal data. Description and examples of partial proportional odds models are also provided. This book is highly readable, with lots of examples and in-depth explanations and interpretations of model characteristics.

The Association Graph and the Multigraph for Loglinear Models will help students, particularly those studying the analysis of categorical data, to develop the ability to evaluate and unravel even the most complex loglinear models without heavy calculations or statistical software. This supplemental text reviews loglinear models, explains the association graph, and introduces the multigraph to students who may have little prior experience of graphical techniques, but have some familiarity with categorical variable modeling. The author presents logical step-by-step techniques from the point of view of the practitioner, focusing on how the technique is applied to contingency table data and how the results are interpreted.

Interaction Effects In Linear And Generalized Linear Models

Robert L. Kaufman's Interaction Effects in Linear and Generalized Linear Models provides comprehensive and accessible coverage of methods for interpreting interaction effects in regression-like models. There are very few books that cover interaction effects in the linear and generalized model in this depth, and the focus on applied research using Stata will make this an invaluable guide for graduate students taking quantitative methods courses in the social and behavioral sciences. The first part of the book develops the statistical basis for the general principles of this wide range of interpretive tools, and illustrates them with applications to a variety of examples. The author begins the second part of the book by introducing the ICALC Toolkit for Stata, and then provides a series of start-to-finish application examples to illustrate how to interpret interaction effects for a variety of different techniques of analysis, beginning with OLS regression. For all the application examples, the data set(s) and the Stata code to reproduce the results will be available in the book and on a website for the book. Students often struggle with the abstract nature of many advanced statistical texts, and this book solves this issue by having a clear set of workable examples with data and explanations.

This book provides a graduate level introduction to multivariate multiple regression analysis. The book can be used as a sole text for that topic, or as a supplemental text in a course that addresses a larger number of multivariate topics. The text is divided into seven short chapters. Apart from the introductory chapter giving an overview of multivariate multiple regression models, the content outline follows the classic steps required to solve multivariate general linear model problems: (a) specifying the model (b)estimating the parameters of the model (c) establishing measures of goodness of fit of the model (d) establishing test statistics and testing hypotheses about the model (e) diagnosing the adequacy of the model.
