Logistic Regression Models for Ordinal Response Variables provides applied researchers in the social, educational, and behavioral sciences with an accessible and comprehensive coverage of analyses for ordinal outcomes. The content builds on a review of logistic regression, and extends to details of the cumulative (proportional) odds, continuation ratio, and adjacent category models for ordinal data. Description and examples of partial proportional odds models are also provided. This book is highly readable, with lots of examples and in-depth explanations and interpretations of model characteristics.
