Logit modeling: practical applications by Alfred DeMaris

By Alfred DeMaris

Logit Modeling represents a step forward for researchers since it bargains methods for extra effective estimation of types with a number of express variables, fairly at any time when the size assumptions for classical a number of regression fail to be met. Taking an utilized strategy, DeMaris starts by way of describing the logit version within the context of the final loglinear version, relocating its software from two-way to multidimensional tables. He then divides the remainder of the publication among an exam of the different types of logit types for contingency tables and logistic regression. all through his insurance of either those significant components, DeMaris emphasizes interpretation of effects. The ebook concludes with an extension of logistic regression to established variables with greater than different types.

The Saturated Model In loglinear analysis, the units of analysis are not the individual respondents, but are instead the sample cell frequencies. These are the independent "bits" of information that all together represent the total degrees of freedom in the data. In our example, there are IJ = 6 degrees of freedom in the data. As we use the information in the data to estimate parameters, we are, in a sense, "using up" the information. If we estimate as many parameters as there are degrees of freedom in the data, we have what is referred to in loglinear analysis as a "saturated" modelthat is, all of the degrees of freedom are used to estimate free parameters.

S. population that has been conducted since 1972 under the direction of the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. Each sample is a stratified, multistage area probability sample of clusters of households in the continental United States. The target population consists of English-speaking persons 18 years of age or over, living in noninstitutional arrangements (National Opinion Research Center, 1989). For didactic purposes the focus here will be the presidential election of 1988, in which George Bush was elected over Michael Dukakis.

Although these parameter estimates are not significant, they are suggestive of a disordinal interaction (Jaccard, Turrisi, & Wan, 1990) between political views and sex in their effects on vote choice. That is, the relationship between sex and vote choice changes in nature, or direction, across levels of political views. The Logit Model for a Three-Way Table The parameter estimates for the loglinear model indicate the effects of variables singly or in combination with others on log expected cell frequencies.
