 Publisher's Summary
 Over the past ten years, there have been many important advances in loglinear modeling, including the specification of new models, in particular nonstandard models, and their relationships to methods such as Rasch modeling. While most literature on the topic is contained in volumes aimed at advanced statisticians, Applied LogLinear Modelingpresents the topic in an accessible style that iscustomized for applied researchers who utilize loglinear modeling in the social sciences. The book begins by providing readers with a foundation on the basics of loglinear modeling, introducing decomposing effects in crosstabulations and goodnessoffit tests. Popular hierarchical loglinear models are illustrated using empirical data examples, and odds ratio analysis is discussed as an interesting method of analysis of crosstabulations. Next, readers are introduced to the design matrix approach to loglinear modeling, presenting various forms of coding (effects coding, dummy coding, Helmert contrasts etc.) and the characteristics of design matrices. The book goes on to explore nonhierarchical and nonstandard loglinear models, outlining ten nonstandard loglinear models (including nonstandard nested models, models with quantitative factors, logit models, and loglinear Rasch models) as well as special topics and applications. A brief discussion of sampling schemes is also provided along with a selection of useful methods of chisquare decomposition. Additional topics of coverage include models of marginal homogeneity, rater agreement, methods to test hypotheses about differences in associations across subgroup, the relationship between loglinear modeling to logistic regression, and reduced designs. Throughout the book, Computer Applications chapters feature SYSTAT, Lem, and R illustrations of the previous chapter's material, utilizingempirical data examples to demonstrate the relevance of the topics in modern research.
