Applications of Regression for Categorical Outcomes Using R

pdf | 8.95 MB | English | Isbn:‎ 1032509511 | Author: David Melamed | Year: 2023


This book covers the main models within the GLM (i.e., logistic, Poisson, negative binomial, ordinal, and multinomial). For each model, estimations, interpretations, model fit, diagnostics, and how to convey results graphically are provided. There is a focus on graphic displays of results as these are a core strength of using R for statistical analysis. Many in the social sciences are transitioning away from using Stata, SPSS and SAS, to using R, and this book uses statistical models which are relevant to the social sciences. Social Science Applications of Regression for Categorical Outcomes Using R will be useful for graduate students in the social sciences who are looking to expand their statistical knowledge, and for Quantitative social scientists due to it's ability to act as a practitioners guide.
Key Features :

  • Applied- in the sense that we will provide code that others can easily adapt

  • Flexible- R is basically just a fancy calculator. Our programs will enable users to derive quantities that they can use in their work

  • Timely- many in the social sciences are currently transitioning to R or are learning it now. Our book will be a useful resource

  • Versatile- we will write functions into an R package that can be applied to all of the regression models we will cover in the book

  • Aesthetically pleasing- one advantage of R relative to other software packages is that graphs are fully customizable. We will leverage this feature to yield high-end graphical displays of results

  • Affordability- R is free. R packages are free. There is no need to purchase site licenses or updates.
