ST 333 - Categorical Data Analysis


In recent years, the use of statistical methods for categorical data has increased dramatically in a variety of areas and applications, particularly for applications in the biomedical sciences. The course focuses on analyzing categorical response data. The main subject areas are analysis of contingency tables; chi-square and exact tests; measures of association; logistic regression; log-linear analysis using binomial, multinomial, and Poisson distributions; logit models for multidimensional tables; and models for ordinal categorical data. Appropriate computer programs are used for analysis of real data sets. Examples and exercises are taken from a broad range of subject areas.
