It is often necessary for social scientists to study differences in groups, such as gender or race differences in attitudes, buying behavior, or socioeconomic characteristics. When the researcher seeks to estimate group differences through the use of independent variables that are qualitative, dummy variables allow the researcher to represent information about group membership in quantitative terms without imposing unrealistic measurement assumptions on the categorical variables. Beginning with the simplest model, Hardy probes the use of dummy variable regression in increasingly complex specifications, exploring issues such as: interaction, heteroscedasticity, multiple comparisons and significance testing, the use of effects or contrast coding, testing for curvilinearity, and estimating a piecewise linear regression.

'From D for Dummy to M for Millionaire' is a how-to-succeed book with a difference. Self-made businessman and author Myles Glew doesn't offer the usual glib advice about doing well at school and then getting as much tertiary education as possible.As he says, for some young people, this is a totally unrealistic goal and not being able to achieve it they feel like losers."They're resentful of a world that labels them as losers so they often go looking for similar people to be part of a gang that can tell that world to get stuffed, preferring to have some status within their group."While learning to read is very important, Myles Glew says, success at school is no guarantee of success in life, and even those with the worst marks at school can be, as he has shown, highly successful as adults.

  • Author: David Patten
  • Publisher: Josselyn Center

From his birth in 1954, David Patten was unbearably sensitive to the world around him. Unable to concentrate or learn the basics of reading and writing, he was punished and pathologized, labeled lazy, stupid, and a troublemaker. David was finally diagnosed with dyslexia, among other elements in the autism spectrum. But at a time when these disorders were little understood, David was unable to get the help he needed, and he gradually fell into the dark underbelly of American life. David’s struggle to survive and find a life worth living included time in a mental institution for attempted suicide at fourteen, and life as a drug dealer in Chicago’s criminal underworld. Eventually, David’s exceptional abilities in abstract and analytical thinking led him into the technology field, and a lucrative six-figure career as a crisis manager and trouble shooter. His story of gradually transforming disabilities into skills, hopelessness into freedom is a testament to the power of the human spirit.

  • Author: Dwight E. Knuth
  • Publisher: LifeRich Publishing

As the title suggests, Dwight is a bit of a non-conformist or as his wife called him, "A Rebel Without A Clue". He never got in any serious trouble but he liked to skate around the edge of it and occasionally his skates slipped and he fell into it. Dwight Knuth has always marched to his own drum while following a path through life lined with accomplishments, failures, joys, sorrows, and struggles. In sharing his fascinating true story that also reveals the history of his ancestors, Dwight hopes to encourage others to embrace their uniqueness and pursue happiness. Dwight begins with his misspent youth where he proclaims he was a rebel without a clue. While providing a glimpse of what it was like to live on the North Dakota prairie during the fifties, Dwight details youthful adventures that include hitchhiking across the United States at age sixteen, being jailed twice during the trip, and then riding on a freight train to return home. As his journey led him to become a Golden Glove boxer, serve in the military during the Berlin Crisis, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam War, Dwight discloses how he faced and overcame many challenges that would later include his wife’s battle with terminal breast cancer. Through it all, Dwight teaches through example that perseverance and faith are keys to surviving and even thriving amid life’s greatest difficulties. This Dummy Pulls His Own Strings shares one man’s experiences as he learned to navigate through life and embrace every good, bad, and ugly moment in his own distinctive way.
