Overdispersion Models in SAS provides a friendly methodology-based introduction to the ubiquitous phenomenon of overdispersion. A basic yet rigorous introduction to the several different overdispersion models, an effective omnibus test for model adequacy, and fully functioning commented SAS codes are given for numerous examples. The examples, many of which use the GLIMMIX, GENMOD, and NLMIXED procedures, cover a variety of fields of application, including pharmaceutical, health care, and consumer products. The book is ideal as a textbook for an M.S.-level introductory course on estimation methods for overdispersion and generalized linear models as well as a first reading for students interested in pursuing this fertile area of research for further study. Topics covered include quasi-likelihood models; likelihood overdispersion binomial, Poisson, and multinomial models; generalized overdispersion linear models (GLOM); goodness-of-fit for overdispersion binomial models; Kappa statistics; marginal and conditional models; generalized estimating equations (GEE); ratio estimation; small sample bias correction of GEE; generalized linear mixed models (GLMM); and generalized linear overdispersion mixed models (GLOMM).

In the popular imagination the Special Air Service Regiment, or SAS, is perceived as both protector and avenger of the Crown and emblematic of staunch British individualism. In Dangerous Men, John Newsinger analyses the recent glut of popular books, magazines and films based on the activities of the SAS and assesses the aggressive masculinity, graphic violence and military prowess that are represented in many of the works, and their use in perpetuating myths of muscle-flexing nationalism. The book is divided into four parts covering the myth of the SAS analysed through historical works, and its representation in personal memoirs, fiction, survival manuals, TV documentaries and Hollywood film. Through the works examined, Newsinger deconstructs a range of real and imagined scenarios in which the SAS are pitted against an array of perceived enemies of the state, including the representation of the its role in the storming of the Iranian Embassy and in conflicts from the Falklands to the Gulf. Among the works examined are the bestselling memoirs by Michael Paul Kennedy, Andy McNab, Peter de la Billiere, Chris Ryan, and Jenny Simpson; fiction by James Follett, Terence Strong, Gerald Seymour and the Soldier A-Z series; key historical accounts by Philip Warner,Tony Geraghty, James Adams, and Mark Urban; and acclaimed films such as Who Dares Wins and The Rock .

The latest from the bestselling author of Operation Mincemeat and A Spy Among Friends -- the untold story of one of WWII's most important secret military units. Ben Macintyre's latest book of derring-do and wartime intrigue reveals the incredible story of the last truly unsung secret organization of World War II -- Britain's Special Air Service, or the SAS. Facing long odds and a tough slog against Rommel and the German tanks in the Middle East theatre, Britain turned to the brainchild of one its most unlikely heroes -- David Stirling, a young man whose aimlessness and almost practiced ennui belied a remarkable mind for strategy. With the help of his equally unusual colleague, the rough-and-tumble Jock Lewes, Stirling sought to assemble a crack team of highly trained men who would parachute in behind enemy lines to throw monkey wrenches into the German war machine. Though he faced stiff resistance from those who believed such activities violated the classic rules of war, Stirling persevered and in the process created a legacy. Staffed by brilliant, idiosyncratic men whose talents defied both tradition and expectations, the SAS would not only change the course of the war, but the very nature of combat itself. Written with complete access to the never-before-seen SAS archives (who chose Macintyre as their official historian), Rogue Heroes offers a powerfully intimate look at life on the battlefield as lived by a group of remarkable soldiers whose contributions have, until now, gone unrecognized beyond the classified world. Filled with wrenching set pieces and weaving its way through multiple theatres of our grandest and most terrible war, this book is both an excellent addition to the Macintyre library and a critical piece in our understanding of the war's unfolding.

Over Christmas and New Year 2006–07 I went to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and some other countries I cannot name, to entertain the Australian troops. It was not because I wanted to aid the war effort. It was not because I wanted to support the diggers. It was just because I wanted to have a bit of a look. This entertaining and eye-opening book is comedian Tom Gleeson's account of what he saw when he went to entertain Australian troops in the Middle East. Showing that he’s willing to do anything to get a laugh—even get shot—Tom does all kinds of stuff he would never usually be allowed to do: fire machine guns, drive tanks in a drag race, hang out in the Green Zone in Baghdad, and play poker with the SAS. It’s a trip that changes his life.

Numerous step-by-step examples show you--the economist, business forecaster, student, or researcher--how to use SAS to generate forecasts for a variety of business and economic data. Examples are based on both time series models and econometric models. You'll learn how to use SAS to forecast time series data using Box-Jenkins ARIMA methodology; develop and forecast transfer functions and intervention models; fit and forecast regression models with autocorrelated, heteroskedastic, and ARCH-GARCH error terms; estimate nonlinear regression models; create forecast confidence limits using Monte Carlo simulation; and more! The main focus of the book is on the code-based procedures in SAS/ETS software, but this book also provides an introduction to the interactive Time Series Forecasting System, and it shows how to plot data and forecasts with SAS/GRAPH software.

An Up-to-Date, All-in-One Resource for Using SAS and R to Perform Frequent Tasks The first edition of this popular guide provided a path between SAS and R using an easy-to-understand, dictionary-like approach. Retaining the same accessible format, SAS and R: Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics, Second Edition explains how to easily perform an analytical task in both SAS and R, without having to navigate through the extensive, idiosyncratic, and sometimes unwieldy software documentation. The book covers many common tasks, such as data management, descriptive summaries, inferential procedures, regression analysis, and graphics, along with more complex applications. New to the Second Edition This edition now covers RStudio, a powerful and easy-to-use interface for R. It incorporates a number of additional topics, including using application program interfaces (APIs), accessing data through database management systems, using reproducible analysis tools, and statistical analysis with Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods and finite mixture models. It also includes extended examples of simulations and many new examples. Enables Easy Mobility between the Two Systems Through the extensive indexing and cross-referencing, users can directly find and implement the material they need. SAS users can look up tasks in the SAS index and then find the associated R code while R users can benefit from the R index in a similar manner. Numerous example analyses demonstrate the code in action and facilitate further exploration. The datasets and code are available for download on the book’s website.
