    Given the undoubtedly major advances in the analysis of contingency tables which have been achieved over the past ten years or so, it might seem rather unnecessary to want to return to first principles again. However, the need arises precisely because of these advances, for progress in the...

    A reanalysis of data included in a recent report by Freedman et al. (1980), using methods suggested by Goodman (1978), yields considerably different substantive conclusions than were arrived at by those earlier analysts. These differences clearly point out the hazards of descriptive analysis,...

    Conventional statistical analysis of contingency tables is logically untenable. It rejects the knowledge of the prior model of cause, and h tests the null hypothesis of independence which cannot be proved to be true or false. Our approach is based on the knowledge of the prior model of cause,...

  • A Note On the Maximum Peirce Skill Score. Manzato, Agostino // Weather & Forecasting;Oct2007, Vol. 22 Issue 5, p1148 

    Binary classifiers are obtained from a continuous predictor using a threshold to dichotomize the predictor value into event occurrence and nonoccurrence classes. A contingency table is associated with each threshold, and from this table many statistical indices (like skill scores) can be...

    For two-way contingency tables with nominal categories in which the explanatory and response variables are not defined clearly, Goodman and Kruskal (1954) considered a proportional reduction in error (PRE) measure, which describes the relative decrease in the probability of making an error in...

    This paper analyzes the situation in which a simple model does not adequately describe the relationships in a multiway contingency table. In such cases the typical solution is to fit models with more complex interactions until an adequate fit is obtained. In some cases, however, the researcher...

    Permutation procedures to compute exact and resampling probability values associated with measures of association for ordered r × c contingency tables are described. Comparisons with asymptotic probability values demonstrated that exact and resampling permutation procedures were preferred...
