Hi,

An excellent book is

Regression with Social Data: Modeling Continuous and Limited Response Variables
A. DeMaris
Wiley Interscience
2004

This has excellent explanations; some math but not overwhelming. Examples are mostly sociological.

Dear Stataliers,

This query is not specific to Stata, but I'd like to have your
recommendations on textbooks for my statistics course. The course will cover
OLS regression, Probit/Logit, Ordered Regression, Multinomial Regression,
Tobit Analysis for the audience of advanced undergraduate and graduate
students with rather weak mathematical background. Too technical a book
would not be appropriate for this group of audience. Ideal would be a book
that addresses basic computational procedures, interpretations, and
assumptions of each of the above regressions. Any suggestion is highly
appreciated.
