Re: [R] Analysing ordinal/nominal data

Hi Brian (and the list of course!),

I still have problems analysing data in R, because I don't know how to tell glm() "use row-effect model, please". The models are well defined by Agresti, but can't get the link from the theory to the implementations in R. Different names, definitions and no explanation of results in the documentation of glm() or summary() make it hard to get in...

But I found another solution for my data: I just use the saturated log-linear model for categorial data and refer to the estimated parameter of the three-way-interaction only. That's enough statistics for my paper ;-).

Thanks for your help,

Piotr Majdak
