Statistical Analysis of Contingency Tables (Hardcover) (Morten W. Fagerland & Stian Lydersen & Petter
About this item
A contingency table is a display format used to analyze the relationship between two or more categorical variables. This book covers the main aspects of statistical inference in contingency tables: effect measures, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. It covers 1x2, 2x2, and higher dimensional tables. For each type of table, it introduces the key methods, including many recent developments, illustrated by real examples from medicine, health, and the social and behavioral sciences. Mathematical details are kept to a minimum.
