SUMMARY

The aim of this book is to give an up to date account of the most commonly uses statist iยญ cal models for categoriCal data. The emphasis is on the connection between theory and appIications to real data sets. The book only covers models for categorical data. Various n:t0dels for mixed continuous and categorical data are thus excluded. The book is written as a textbook, although many methods and results are quite recent. This should imply, that the book can be used for a graduate course in categorical data analysis. With this aim in mind chapters 3 to 12 are concluded with a set of exerยญ eises. In many cases, the data sets are those data sets, which were not included in the examples of the book, although they at one point in time were regarded as potential canยญ didates for an example. A certain amount of general knowledge of statistical theory is necessary to fully benefit from the book. A summary of the basic statistical concepts deemed necessary preยญ requisites is given in chapter 2. The mathematical level is only moderately high, but the account in chapter 3 of basic properties of exponential families and the parametric multinomial distribution is made as mathematical preeise as possible without going into mathematical details and leaving out most proofs
