I would like to know which are your favourite books on General and Advanced Statistical Data Analysis and Modeling.

In particular, I would like to know which books you consider the must-have for an applied statistician, like "Econometric Analysis" (Greene) and "Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data" (Woolridge) are for econometricians.

  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean by advanced? $\endgroup$ – Tim Mar 31 '15 at 7:21
  • $\begingroup$ I mean: advanced $\neq$ introductory. $\endgroup$ – stochazesthai Mar 31 '15 at 7:27
  • $\begingroup$ So it could be any specialised statistical handbook? $\endgroup$ – Tim Mar 31 '15 at 7:29
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, for example if you can suggest a book on survival analysis, it would be really appreciated! $\endgroup$ – stochazesthai Mar 31 '15 at 7:38

    $\begingroup$ This makes possibly any non-introductory book meet the criteria (in Amazon there is $\approx 5000$ books on query "advanced statistics"). You should make it more specific e.g. "books on survival analysis". I vote o close this as too broad. $\endgroup$ – Tim Mar 31 '15 at 9:14

These are no-brainers:

Perhaps someone could recommend the default answer for statistical books on multivariate data analysis?


The book on Bayesian data analysis:

The Bayesian Choice by Christian Robert. http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9780387952314

While the book on machine learning and big data would be, as Tommy L said:

Elements of statistical learning by Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman. http://statweb.stanford.edu/~tibs/ElemStatLearn/
