Categorical Data Analysis with Graphics
SCS Short Course
This document contains the (somewhat out-of-date) online version of the course notes for the short
course, Categorical Data Analysis with Graphics,
offered through the
Statistical Consulting Service at York University.
The online version contains the text, tables, and character-based graphs
of the printed version, and many, but not all, of the
high-resolution graphs. The images have been reduced to 60% of original size, however, out of consideration for network traffic, but somewhat at the expense of esthetics.
As well, most of the typeset equations from the printed version
are rendered simply as text, which means they look like input to a formula
processor (which is what they are).
If you want to learn more about categorical data analysis, there are several
books and other resources I recommend:
