conducting and interpreting response surface analysis



Introduction to Response Surface Analysis

The current paper describes response surface analysis (RSA), an approach designed to answer questions about how (mis)matching predictors relate to outcomes while avoiding many of the statistical limitations of alternative, often-used approaches.


Shifted Ridge Test

In the current document, we explain how researchers can test a strong version of the matching hypothesis, specifically whether perfectly matched combinations of X and Y predict the highest levels of a criterion.
