The Association Graph and the Multigraph for Loglinear Models



March 2011 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Though the graphical model was introduced in 1980, most of the research and application of the methodology in this field has been done by Europeans. The U.S. has lagged somewhat behind; only in recent years has the graphical model appeared in some of the American textbooks on categorical data, and even then the coverage is limited. The purpose of this work is to provide an initial source of reading for someone interested in the topic.

This publication distinguishs itself from any other book by including the multigraph representation of LLMs, a natural and very effective extension of the graphical model approach. The book's coverage would extend from the LLM, already covered by Knoke and Burke's SAGE publication, "Log-Linear Models," through the development and application of the multigraph representation in one coherent, comprehensive treatment.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
