Some historical highlights in the development of categorical data methodology

Alan Agresti, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Statistics, University of Florida, USA

Abstract: This talk surveys the development of the basic methods of categorical data analysis, starting with Karl Pearson's introduction of the chi-squared test in 1900. It focuses on the contributions of statisticians who introduced methods such as analyses of associations in contingency tables, logistic regression and probit models for binary and multicategory responses, loglinear models for multivariate categorical responses, and Bayesian approaches.
