An Applied Treatment of Modern Graphical Methods for Analyzing Categorical Data

Discrete Data Analysis with R: Visualization and Modeling Techniques for Categorical and Count Data presents an applied treatment of modern methods for the analysis of categorical data, both discrete response data and frequency data. It explains how to use graphical methods for exploring data, spotting unusual features, visualizing fitted models, and presenting results.

The book is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the social and health sciences, epidemiology, economics, business, statistics, and biostatistics as well as researchers, methodologists, and consultants who can use the methods with their own data and analyses. Along with describing the necessary statistical theory, the authors illustrate the practical application of the techniques to a large number of substantive problems, including how to organize data, conduct an analysis, produce informative graphs, and evaluate what the graphs reveal about the data.

The first part of the book contains introductory material on graphical methods for discrete data, basic R skills, and methods for fitting and visualizing one-way discrete distributions. The second part focuses on simple, traditional nonparametric tests and exploratory methods for visualizing patterns of association in two-way and larger frequency tables. The final part of the text discusses model-based methods for the analysis of discrete data.

Web ResourceThe data sets and R software used, including the authors’ own vcd and vcdExtra packages, are available at http://cran.r-project.org.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an excellent book, nearly encyclopedic in its coverage. I personally find it very useful and expect that many other readers will as well. The book can certainly serve as a reference. It could also serve as a supplementary text in a course on categorical data analysis that uses R for computation or—because so much statistical detail is provided—even as the main text for a course on the topic that emphasizes graphical methods."—John Fox, McMaster University"For many years, Prof. Friendly has been the most effective promoter in Statistics of graphical methods for categorical data. We owe thanks to Friendly and Meyer for promoting graphical methods and showing how easy it is to implement them in R. This impressive book is a very worthy addition to the library of anyone who spends much time analyzing categorical data." (Alan Agresti, Biometrics)
