Logistic Planning and Collaboration in Complex Relief Operations by teven J. Romano

3. The Stepwise method

Here is where John can use the forward selection, the backwards elimination, or a combination of both.

In the forward selection, John tries out the variables one by one (starting with none at all) and including those that are statistically significant. In the backward elimination, the reverse occurs; John starts with all variables, tests them for significance and eliminates those that lack significance.
