Call number: QA278 E95 2013 Material type: TextTextPublisher: Hoboken, New Jersey : Wiley, a John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Publication, 2013.Description: xv, 450 p. : ill. ; 25 cm..ISBN: 9781118146408 (hardback)Other title: Log linear modeling.Subject(s): Log-linear models.DDC classification: 519.5 Summary: "Over the past ten years, there have been many important advances in log-linear modeling, including the specification of new models, in particular non-standard models, and their relationships to methods such as Rasch modeling. While most literature on the topic is contained in volumes aimed at advanced statisticians, Applied Log-Linear Modeling presents the topic in an accessible style that is customized for applied researchers who utilize log-linear modeling in the social sciences. The book begins by providing readers with a foundation on the basics of log-linear modeling, introducing decomposing effects in cross-tabulations and goodness-of-fit tests. Popular hierarchical log-linear models are illustrated using empirical data examples, and odds ratio analysis is discussed as an interesting method of analysis of cross-tabulations. Next, readers are introduced to the design matrix approach to log-linear modeling, presenting various forms of coding (effects coding, dummy coding, Helmert contrasts etc.) and the characteristics of design matrices. The book goes on to explore non-hierarchical and nonstandard log-linear models, outlining ten nonstandard log-linear models (including nonstandard nested models, models with quantitative factors, logit models, and log-linear Rasch models) as well as special topics and applications. A brief discussion of sampling schemes is also provided along with a selection of useful methods of chi-square decomposition. Additional topics of coverage include models of marginal homogeneity, rater agreement, methods to test hypotheses about differences in associations across subgroup, the relationship between log-linear modeling to logistic regression, and reduced designs. Throughout the book, Computer Applications chapters feature SYSTAT, Lem, and R illustrations of the previous chapter's material, utilizing empirical data examples to demonstrate the relevance of the topics in modern research"-- Provided by publisher.
