Learn How to Correctly Analyze Categorical Data

Analysis of Categorical Data with R (PDF) presents a contemporary account of categorical knowledge evaluation utilizing the favored R software program. It contains current strategies of mannequin constructing and evaluation for binary, multicategory, and depend response variables and discusses fundamentals, like odds ratio and likelihood estimation. The authors give detailed recommendation and requirements on which procedures to make use of and why to make use of them.

The Use of R as Both a Data Analysis Method and a Learning Tool

Requiring no earlier expertise with R, the textual content supplies an introduction to the very important options and capabilities of R. It contains quite a few examples from medication, psychology, ecology, sports activities and different areas, collectively with in depth R code and output. The authors use knowledge simulation in R to help readers perceive the underlying assumptions of a process after which to analyse the process’s efficiency. They additionally present many graphical demonstrations of the options and properties of numerous evaluation strategies.
