The total variable cost normally changes as the activity level changes, while per unit, the variable cost per unit will normally remain the equal over a wider range of activity. Fixed cost will always remain the same when the activity level changes while fixed cost per unit decreases with an increase in the activity level (Hansen, et, al 2006) Mixed cost, have both the component of variable and fixed costs.

Bruce Ratner views stepwise selection as being far too narrow in yielding confidence and will not produce good results if used when the data has redundant predictors. This is opposed to forward and backward selection which are very efficient in such situations and many others (Bruce, 2011). Many other people do not share the same opinion as Bruce Ratner: many computer data analysts find stepwise selection to be very efficient and good to use.

Both the techniques follow different processes. Absorption costing is however considered to be more appropriate than variable costing as it is recognized by GAAP.
