Abstract:

The analysis of the information in contingency tables is an aspect of multivariate multiple variates analysis with particular application to qualitative or categorical as well as quantitative variables. The analysis is concerned with counts in multiway cross-classifications or multiple contingency tables. Multiway contingency tables, or cross-classifications of vectors of discrete random variables, provide a useful approach to the analysis of multivariate discrete data. The method of analysis presented will bring out the various interrelationships among the classificatory variables in a multiway cross-classification or contingency table in many dimensions. The illustration of the procedure is an application to Marine cohort data considering the relation of boot camp completion on home of record, level of education, and race.
