    About Regression Graphics.
    This article presents an overview of regression graphics from a tutorial given at the 1998 Interface Meetings in Minneapolis, MN. The intent was to discuss basic ideas and issues without delving into methodological or theoretical details, and to provide a guide to the literature through an annotated bibliography.
    Arc software.
    Arc is a comprehensive, menu-driven regression package that allows application of many standard methods in addition to most of the methods discussed in this book. It was designed in part as a computing companion to the new 1999 Wiley text "Applied Regression Including Computing and Graphics" by R. D. Cook and S. Weisberg. This link takes you to the home page for Arc software.
    Supplemental graphs
    Some of the graphics in the book don't translate well to a static black-and-white piece of paper. As a supplement, we offer graphics which may better illustrate the points in the book.
    Download Data
    Most data sets in the book are available here in a form that can be read by Arc.
