I apologize for the off-topic question, but this is the largest and most
responsive statistical community that I've been a part of.
I'm looking for citable references on stepwise regression, specifically those
that cover when stepwise regession is a suitable fitting technique. Two
reviewers have responded to a manuscript where I fit a small dataset (n = 36)
with a large model (p = 6) suggesting that I should use stepwise regession.
I think it's a bad idea. Can anyone help me find some ammunition?
