"A welcome addition to multivariate analysis. The discussion is lucid and very leisurely, excellently illustrated with applications drawn from a wide variety of fields. A good part of the book can be understood without very specialized statistical knowledge. It is a most welcome contribution to an interesting and lively subject." -- NatureOriginally published in 1974, this book is a reprint of a classic, still-valuable text.

From the Jacket

"At last, after a decade of mounting interest in log-linear and related models for the analysis of discrete multivariate data, particularly in the form of multidimensional tables, we now have a comprehensive text and general reference on the subject. Even a mediocre attempt to organize the extensive and widely scattered literature on d...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book deals with discrete multivariate analysis in an effort to bring together in an organised way the extensive theory and practice existing in this field. It is organised in 14 chapters. . is well addressed to readers from different background and different interests covering a wide range from graduate students in theoretical statistics to quantitative biological or social scientists, applied statisticians and other quantitative research workers looking for comprehensive analyses of discrete multivariate data." (Christina Diakaki, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1131 (9), 2008)
