Model Building

  • Phillip I. Good


In this chapter, you advance from qualitative hypotheses to quantitative models linking cause and effect. As always, you’ll begin with your reports, listing and, preferably, graphing your anticipated results. From these graphs you will derive formal models combining deterministic and stochastic (that is, random) elements, then use the methods developed in Chapter 4 to estimate the values of model parameters and test hypotheses about them.
