Author Information
New To This Edition

Second edition of one of the bestselling books on categorical data analysis, from one of the most authoritative authors in the field.

Features new chapters on marginal models, including the generalized estimating equations (GEE) approach and random effects models.

Already existing material, including SAS and SPSS data sets, is updated to reflect technical advances since the publication of the first edition.

Introductory material on generalized linear models will now include information on negative binomial regression.

Written on a relatively low technical level and does not require familiarity with advanced mathematics such as calculus or matrix algebra.
Reviews
"This text does a good job of achieving its state goal, and we enthusiastically recommend it." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2008)
"This book is very wellwritten and it is obvious that the author knows the subject inside out." (Journal of Applied Statistics, April 2008)
"Provides an applied introduction to the most important methods for analyzing categorical data, such as chisquared tests and logical regression." (Statistica 2008)
"This is an introductory book and as such it is marvelous...essential for a novice..." (MAA Reviews, June 26, 2007)
