Purpose: To show that categorical predict variables can be used in regression, but that you should not unless they really are categorical. This example is used to show how to switch between different types of data. Children, aged 5 to 9 years-old, participated in a magic show. Two weeks later they took part in an exit interview where they were asked about the magic show. Then, approximately ten months later, they were re-interviewed.

Chapter 7. Regression splines and Generalized Additive Models (GAMs) Additive models involve piecing together different curves, which are called splines, to map out the relationship between each predictor variable and the response variable. These are very flexible models and are most valuable either for graphically exploring data or when not wanting to make many assumptions about one predictor variable when looking at more specific models with another predictor variable. We use two examples, one exploring the gender gap in income (Berndt, 1991) and the other looking at ways of detecting deception.
