Subject: [R] Multiple regression

> Hi,
> I am trying to do multiple regression on a set of data using
backward stepwise regression....however backward stepwise regression
is critised for overfitting data. To actually observe the bias and to
come up with a better method to use..Could you all stats experts
kindly give me pointers to any alternative procedure (or references)
to use over backward stepwise regression from your experience?
> TIA.
