Analysis of Nominal Data

88 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The updated second edition offers expanded discussions of the chi square test of significance and the potential measures of association available for use with categoric data. Reviewing basic techniques in analysis of nominal data, this paper employs survey research data on party identification and ideologies to indicate which measures and tests are most appropriate for particular theoretical concerns. This book serves as an ideal primer for Volume 20, Log-Linear Models.
