Ordinal Log-Linear Models



December 1994 | 72 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
What log-linear models can social scientists use to examine categorical variables whose attributes may be logically rank-ordered? In this book, the author presents a technique that is often overlooked but highly advantageous when dealing with such ordered variables as social class, political ideology and life satisfaction attitudes. Beginning with an introduction to the concept and measurement of ordinal models and a brief review of nominal log-linear analysis, the book provides a detailed description of the various ordinal models, including row effects, column effects, uniform association and uniform interaction models. Each model is illustrated with data from the National Survey of Families and Households, with which Ishii-Kuntz discusses the fit of the models, how alternative models compare and odds ratios. Additionally, statistical computer software packages that can be used to estimate these models are presented.

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.
