In this workshop we will cover the analysis of categorical data in contingency tables using the Pearson Chi-Square statistic, and similar large sample tests. We will also cover the use of exact statistical tests and Monte Carlo approaches. The impact of nominal or ordinal categories will be covered. In the second part of the class we will cover the use of logistic regression for the analysis of binary data and briefly touch on the generalization to multinomial or ordinal outcomes. Examples will be given using the SPSS software. SAS software for such analysis will be discussed if time allows.
