  • Frank E. HarrellJr.
Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


The following case study illustrates these techniques:
  1. 1.

    missing data imputation using mean substitution, recursive partitioning, and customized regressions;

  2. 2.

    variable clustering;

  3. 3.

    data reduction using principal components analysis and pretransformations;

  4. 4.

    restricted cubic spline fitting using ordinary least squares, in the context of scaling; and

  5. 5.

    scaling/variable transformations using canonical variates and nonparametric additive regression.
