The use of statistical methods for categorical data has increased dramatically, particularly for applications in the biomedical and social sciences. Responding to new developments in the field as well as to the needs of a new generation of professionals and students, this new edition of the classic Categorical Data Analysis offers a comprehensive introduction to the most important methods for categorical data analysis.
Designed for statisticians and biostatisticians as well as scientists and graduate students practicing statistics, Categorical Data Analysis, Second Edition summarizes the latest methods for univariate and correlated multivariate categorical responses. Readers will find a unified generalized linear models approach that connects logistic regression and Poisson and negative binomial regression for discrete data with normal regression for continuous data.
the essential reference text for statisticians comprehensive and readable (Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Vol. 14, 2005) "...careful, thorough, up to date volume...the new content and emphases in the second edition are sufficient to justify its purchase even by someone who already owns the first edition." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 2004) "I liked this revised edition and recommend it highly to statisticians and graduate students." (Journal of Statistical Computation & Simulation, March 2004) "...a highly satisfactory text on methods for categorical response variables...more complete and technical [than the First Edition]..." (IIE Transactions on Quality and Reliability Engineering) "If you own the 1E, you absolutely need to upgrade to the 2E. If you do any analysis of categorical data, this is an essential desktop reference..." (Technometrics, Vol. 45, No. 1, February 2003) "...this classic book is substantially modified and expanded..." (International Journal of General Systems, Vol. 32, 2003) "...it is a total delight reading this book, which should be considered as the current standard textbook for teaching analysis of categorical data." (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 20, No. 6, June 2003) "...written in a highly scientific but vivid style, intelligible for all researchers in that field...simply expressed, grand..." (Zentralblatt Math, 2004) Each chapter ahs been extensively rewritten...gives an overview of methods for analyzing categorical data, both older, now standard methods, and methods developed in recent years.
