This contribution is from David Corliss. David teaches a class on this subject, giving a (very brief) description of 23 regression methods in just an hour, with an example and the package and procedures used for each case. 

Here you can check the webcast done for Central Michigan University. The slide deck can be found here. Below is the presentation transcript. If you know some other types of regressions, you can list them in the comment section below. For instance, I would add piecewise linear regression, as well as regression on unusual domains (on a sphere or on the simplex.) For more on regression, click here

How did it grow from 23 to 49?

Comment by David Reinke on February 16, 2017 at 12:20pm

We have used discrete-choice models in transportation -- mainly for mode choice analysis -- for the past 40+ years. For an in-depth treatment of the topic, I highly recommend Kenneth Train's book Discrete Choice Methods with Simulation (Cambridge Univ. Press); you can also find his course online through his web site: http://eml.berkeley.edu//~train/
