Discrete multivariate analysis : theory and practice by Yvonne M. M Bishop( Book )

85 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At last, after a decade of mounting interest in log-linear and related models for the analysis of discrete multivariate data, particularly in the form of multidimensional tables, we now have a comprehensive text and general reference on the subject. Even a mediocre attempt to organize the extensive and widely scattered literature on discrete multivariate analysis would be welcome; happily, this is an excellent such effort, but a group of Harvard statisticians taht has contributed much to the field. Their book ought to serve as a basic guide to the analysis of quantitative data for years to come." --James R. Beninger, Contemporary Sociology "A welcome addition to multivariate analysis. The discussion is lucid and very leisurely, excellently illustrated with applications drawn from a wide variety of fields. A good part of the book can be understood without very specialized statistical knowledge. It is a most welcome contribution to an interesting and lively subject." --D.R. Cox, Nature "Discrete Multivariate Analysis is an ambitious attempt to present log-linear models to a broad audience. Exposition is quite discursive, and the mathematical level, except in Chapters 12 and 14, is very elementary. To illustrate possible applications, some 60 different sets of data have been gathered together from diverse fields. To aid the reader, an index of these examples has been provided. ...the book contains a wealth of material on important topics. Its numerous examples are especially valuable." --Shelby J. Haberman, The Annals of Statistics
Who counts? : the politics of census-taking in contemporary America by Margo J Anderson( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,005 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who Counts? offers a detailed review of the preparation, implementation, and aftermath of the last three censuses. It recounts the growing criticisms of inaccuracy and undercounting, and the work to develop new enumeration strategies."--BOOK JACKET. "Who Counts? concludes with a discussion of the proposed census design for 2000, as well as the implications of population counts on the composition and size of Congress. This volume reveals in extraordinary detail the interplay of law, politics, and science that propel the ongoing census debate, a debate whose outcome will have tremendous impact on the distribution of political power and economic resources among the nation's communities."--Jacket
Statistics and the law by Morris H DeGroot( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes a wide variety of applications of statistical concepts in legal settings, as well as cases in which statistical analyses were important elements. Several chapters are devoted to employment discrimination and antitrust violation, two areas of litigation that rely heavily on statistics. Contributors discuss the correct choice and use of statistical techniques in the assessment of damages, the measurement and quantification of skill (in a case deciding whether video poker games require skill), the determination of disputed paternity and elections, and other areas where statistics are used in legal cases. Many of the chapters are written by the statisticians who actually participated in the cases under discussion

A Celebration of statistics : the ISI centenary volume by A. C Atkinson( Book )

22 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Statistical Institute was founded in 1885 and is therefore one of the world's oldest international scientific societies. The field of statistics is still expanding rapidly and possesses a rich variety of applications in many areas of human activity such as science, government, business, industry, and everyday affairs. In consequence, the celebration of the Institute's centenary in 1985 is of considerable interest not only to statisticians but also more widely to the international scientific community. As part of its centennial celebration planning the Institute decided to publish a volume of papers representing the immensely wide range of interests encompassed by statistics in its international context, viewed both from a historical and from a contemporary standpoint. We were fortunate in securing the services of Anthony Atkinson and Stephen Fienberg as Editors of this volume: they have worked hard over a period of several years to put together a most fascinating collection of papers. On behalf of the Institute it is my pleasant duty to thank them and the authors for their contributions. J. DURBIN, President International Statistical Institute Preface The papers in this volume were prepared to help celebrate the centenary of the International Statistical Institute. During the lSI's first 100 years statistics has matured, both as a scientific discipline and as a profession, in ways that the lSI's founders could not possibly have imagined

The Evolving role of statistical assessments as evidence in the courts by Stephen E Fienberg( Book )

16 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a culmination of more than three years of research and deliberation. In it, a variety of issues are addressed that arise in federal and state court proceedings when statistical assessments such as quantitative descriptions, causal inferences, and predictions of events based on earlier occurrences are presented as evidence. We appraise the forms in which such assessments are presented, aspects of their admission into evidence, and the response to and evaluation of them by judges and juries. Our recommendations include several innovations to improve the comprehension of statistial evidence by judges and juries. In addition to jurists, who must evaluate statistical testimony, our report is addressed to lawyers, who may have occasion to draw on statistical testimony or to present factual arguments that incorporate statistical assessments; to statisticians, social scientists, and others who may serve as expert witnesses presenting statistical arguments; and to the research communities in law, statistics, and the social sciences that seek to understand how courts cope with unfamiliar and technically complex information. Our ultimate goal is to improve the legal process
Cohort analysis in social research : beyond the identification problem by William M Mason( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The existence of the present volume can be traced to methodological concerns about cohort analysis, all of which were evident throughout most of the social sciences by the late 1970s. For some social scientists, they became part of a broader discussion concerning the need for new analytical techniques for research based on longitudinal data. In 1976, the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), with funds from the National Institute of Education, established a Committee on the Methodology of Longitudinal Research. (The scholars who comprised this committee are listed at the front of this volume.) As part of the efforts of this Committee, an interdisciplinary conference on cohort analysis was held in the summer of 1979, in Snowmass, Colorado. Much of the work presented here stems from that conference, the purpose of which was to promote the development of general methodological tools for the study of social change. The conference included five major presentations by (1) William Mason and Herbert Smith, (2) Karl J6reskog and Dag S6rbom, (3) Gregory Markus, (4) John Hobcraft, Jane Menken and Samuel Preston, and (5) Stephen Fienberg and William Mason. The formal presentations were each followed by extensive discussion, which involved as participants: Paul Baltes, William Butz, Philip Converse, Otis Dudley Duncan, David Freedman, William Meredith, John Nesselroade, Daniel Price, Thomas Pullum, Peter Read, Matilda White Riley, Norman Ryder, Warren Sanderson, Warner Schaie, Burton Singer, Nancy Tuma, Harrison White, and Halliman Winsborough

The pleasures of statistics : an autobiography of Frederick Mosteller by Frederick Mosteller( Book )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his unique perspective, renowned statistician and educator Frederick Mosteller describes many of the projects and events in his long career. From humble beginnings in western Pennsylvania to becoming the founding chairman of Harvard University's Department of Statistics and beyond, he inspired many statisticians, scientists, and students with his unabashed pragmatism, creative thinking, and zest for both learning and teaching. This candid account offers fresh insights into the qualities that made Mosteller a superb teacher, a prolific scholar, a respected leader, and a valued advisor. A special feature of the book is its chapter-length insider accounts of work on the pre-election polls of 1948, statistical aspects of the Kinsey report on sexual behavior in the human male, mathematical learning theory, authorship of the disputed Federalist papers, safety of anesthetics, and a wide-ranging examination of the Coleman report on equality of educational opportunity. This volume is a companion to Selected Papers of Frederick Mosteller (Springer, 2006) and A Statistical Model: Frederick Mosteller's Contributions to Statistics, Science, and Public Policy (Springer-Verlag, 1990). Frederick Mosteller (1916-2006) was Roger I. Lee Professor of Mathematical Statistics at Harvard University. His manuscript was unfinished at his death and has been updated
Assessing evaluation studies : the case of bilingual education strategies by Washington, DC. Committee on National Statistics National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results of a National Research Council review of two major bilingual education studies are presented. The two studies were a national longitudinal study of the effectiveness of instruction of limited-English-proficient students and a study comparing three bilingual education program types (immersion, early exit, and late exit). The report contains six sections. The first gives an overview of this review's research and policy contexts, describes the two studies, and outlines the report's contents. The second section offers information about the research methodology used for bilingual education, including collection of statistical data, definition of outcomes and treatments, units of analysis, and appropriate kinds of inferences. Sections 3 and 4 describe the two studies, longitudinal and comparative, respectively, and detail the findings of their separate reviews. The fifth section looks at lessons learned during the process, concerning specifying objectives for bilingual education, developing interventions based on theory, and designing and implementing experiments. Section 6 outlines conclusions and recommendations drawn from the review. Appended materials include: a brief history of bilingual education in the United States; a discussion of trajectory analysis of matched percentiles, a graphical methodology; a list of acronyms; biographical sketches of review panel members and staff; and a bibliography.

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to scientific needs for more diverse and structured explanations of statistical data, researchers have discovered how to model individual data points as belonging to multiple groups. Handbook of Mixed Membership Models and Their Applications shows you how to use these flexible modeling tools to uncover hidden patterns in modern high-dimensional multivariate data. It explores the use of the models in various application settings, including survey data, population genetics, text analysis, image processing and annotation, and molecular biology. Through examples using real data sets, yo
Statistical network analysis : models, issues, and new directions : ICML 2006 Workshop on Statistical Network Analysis, Pittsburgh, PA, USA, June 29, 2006 : revised selected papers by Edoardo Airoldi( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was prepared to share with a larger audience the exciting ideas and work presented at an ICML 2006 workshop of the same title. Network models have a long history. Sociologists and statisticians made major advances in the 1970s and 1980s, culminating in part with a number of substantial databases and the class of exponential random graph models and related methods in the early 1990s. Physicists and computer scientists came to this domain cons- erably later, but they enriched the array of models and approaches and began to tackle much larger networks and more complex forms of data. Our goal in organ- ing the workshop was to encourage a dialog among people coming from di?erent disciplinary perspectives and with di?erent methods, models, and tools. Both the workshop and the editing of the proceedings was a truly colla- rative e?ort on behalf of all six editors, but three in particular deserve special recognition. Anna Goldenberg and Alice Zheng were the driving force behind the entire enterprise and Edo Airoldi assisted on a number of the more important arrangements
