Before I start I just wanted to cordially thank you all for this great community...I really admire the work you have done...and the answers you have provided to tough questions...

Here is one...tough for me question...please forgive me if you have already answered it.

I have been told...that stepwise regression is for dummies...people who start doing inferential statistics or their PhD or Masters dissertation ... from other fields of statistics and do not think or have good statistical analytical skills...

Therefore, I was wondering if anyone could share with us a table matrix or chart or references that compares the different types of regressions.

THANK YOU so much for your great and really invaluable help and support
