From the Publisher
Summarizes methods used for the analysis of categorical data, including many recently developed techniques. The emphasis is on loglinear and logit modeling techniques, which share many features with linear model methods for continuous variables. Incorporated into the exposition is interesting historical information (and controversies) on the development of categorical data analysis. Chapters 1-7 cover bivariate categorical data and loglinear and logit model building; chapters 8-11 discuss applications and methods; chapters 12 and 13 address theoretical foundations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
