Praise for the second one Edition

"A must-have booklet for a person watching for to do examine and/or purposes in specific information analysis."
Statistics in Medicine

"It is a complete pride analyzing this book."
Pharmaceutical Research

"If you do any research of specific facts, this is often a vital computer reference."

The use of statistical equipment for interpreting specific information has elevated dramatically, really within the biomedical, social sciences, and fiscal industries. Responding to new advancements, this e-book deals a entire remedy of crucial equipment for express facts analysis.

Categorical information research, 3rd Edition summarizes the newest equipment for univariate and correlated multivariate express responses. Readers will discover a unified generalized linear types process that connects logistic regression and Poisson and detrimental binomial loglinear versions for discrete facts with common regression for non-stop info. This version additionally features:

  • An emphasis on logistic and probit regression equipment for binary, ordinal, and nominal responses for self sufficient observations and for clustered information with marginal types and random results models
  • Two new chapters on substitute tools for binary reaction information, together with smoothing and regularization tools, category equipment akin to linear discriminant research and category bushes, and cluster analysis
  • New sections introducing the Bayesian process for tactics in that chapter
  • More than a hundred analyses of knowledge units and over six hundred exercises
  • Notes on the finish of every bankruptcy that supply references to contemporary examine and themes no longer coated within the textual content, associated with a bibliography of greater than 1,200 sources
  • A supplementary web site displaying tips on how to use R and SAS; for all examples within the textual content, with details additionally approximately SPSS and Stata and with workout solutions

Categorical information research, 3rd Edition is a useful instrument for statisticians and methodologists, equivalent to biostatisticians and researchers within the social and behavioral sciences, medication and public health and wellbeing, advertising, schooling, finance, organic and agricultural sciences, and business caliber control.
