The first book to provide a unified framework for both single-level and multilevel modeling of ordinal categorical data, Applied Ordinal Logistic Regression Using Stata helps readers learn how to conduct analyses, interpret the results from Stata output, and present those results in scholarly writing. Using step-by-step instructions, this non-technical, applied book leads students, applied researchers, and practitioners to a deeper understanding of statistical concepts by closely connecting the underlying theories of models with the application of real-world data using statistical software.

Answers to In-Text Questions

In this book, Xing Liu offers a well-crafted book focused on the application of ordinal response models across fields. Readers will be equipped to competently handle a variety of statistical techniques from basic correlations to more advanced generalized ordered logistic regression models. This is an excellent resource for both new consumers of these statistical applications to seasoned veterans working on more complex issues related to ordinal response models.

Logistic regression can be difficult to understand. Without a book explaining the test in a plain and easy-to-understand matter, learners will feel lost and get frustrated. However, Applied Ordinal Logistic Regression Using Stata explains the concept clearly and provides practical codes and output.  Learners will find this book approachable and easy to follow.

Key features

KEY FEATURES:

  • Comprehensive coverage of modern ordinal regression techniques from proportional odds models to advanced multilevel models is presented in a logical way to support reader comprehension.
  • Step-by-step explanation of model fitting using Stata prepares readers to use Stata in their own research.
  • A focus on interpreting the models and presenting the results for publication includes coverage of how to create publication-quality tables using Stata.
  • New features for the margins and marginsplot commands are introduced for Stata 14 to help readers better understand and interpret the models for ordinal response variables.
  • Real examples from national large-scale datasets, such as Education Longitudinal Studies (ELS:2002) and General Social Survey of 2012 (GSS2012) can be generalized to a wide range of fields.
  • Datasets, Stata code, and answers to in-text questions are provided on an accompanying website at study.sagepub.com/liu-aolr.
