Odds Ratios in the Analysis of Contingency Tables



February 1998 | 88 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume shows how odds ratios can be used as a framework for understanding log-linear models. Moving systematically from the paradigmatic 2x2 case to more complicated cases, the author defines the odds ratio and demonstrates how it is a measure of association for tabular analysis.

Real-world examples are consistently provided throughout the volume. By presenting categorical data models in a unified framework, readers will learn not only how these models are related, but also additional interpretations of these models, not usually covered in other texts.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
