Odds Ratios in the Analysis of Contingency Tables



December 1997 | 88 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

This volume shows how odds ratios can be used as a framework for understanding log-linear models. Tightly organized, the book moves systematically from the paradigmatic 2x2 case to more complicated cases. Author Tamas Rudas carefully defines the odds ratio and demonstrates how it is a measure of association for tabular analysis. Throughout the book, Rudas provides real examples, including those from the famous Stouffer data on American soldiers in World War II. By presenting categorical data models in a unified framework, readers will learn not only how these models are related but also additional interpretations of these models not usually covered in other texts.
