Regression Analysis for Social Sciences presents methods of regression analysis in an accessible way, with each method having illustrations and examples. A broad spectrum of methods are included: multiple categorical predictors, methods for curvilinear regression, and methods for symmetric regression. This book can be used for courses in regression analysis at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate level in the social and behavioral sciences. Most of the techniques are explained step-by-step enabling students and researchers to analyze their own data. Examples include data...

These edited volumes present new statistical methods in a way that bridges the gap between theoretical and applied statistics. The volumes cover general problems and issues and more specific topics concerning the structuring of change, the analysis of time series, and the analysis of categorical longitudinal data. The book targets students of development and change in a variety of fields - psychology, sociology, anthropology, education, medicine, psychiatry, economics, behavioural sciences, developmental psychology, ecology, plant physiology, and biometry - with basic training in statistics...

Categorical Variables in Developmental Research provides developmental researchers with the basic tools for understanding how to utilize categorical variables in their data analysis. Covering the measurement of individual differences in growth rates, the measurement of stage transitions, latent class and log-linear models, chi-square, and more, the book provides a means for developmental researchers to make use of categorical data.

This book presents an introduction to the methodology of structural equation modeling, illustrates its use, and goes on to argue that it has revolutionary implications for the study of natural systems. A major theme of this book is that we have, up to this point, attempted to study systems primarily using methods (such as the univariate model) that were designed only for considering individual processes. Understanding systems requires the capacity to examine simultaneous influences and responses. Structural equation modeling (SEM) has such capabilities. It also possesses many other traits...

Agreement among raters is of great importance in many domains. Divided into five sections, this text describes methods of analysis of agreement data that come in the usual agreement table or in the form of raw data. Part I introduces readers to coefficients of rater agreement and discusses their characteristics. Part II describes a family of log-linear models that allow one to test specific hypotheses about the agreement table, including hypotheses of general agreement and those about trends in raters' judgments. The next two sections present methods for the exploration of rater agreement and...
