Uncoupling Multidimensional Contingency Tables

Helmut Vorkauf *
Bern, Switzerland, in Retirement


A parsimonious and robust new method, based on information theory, to analyze multidimensional contingency tables is presented. It swiftly reveals the important relations between dependent and independent variables and casually detects confounding effects in a straightforward manner. The method in its simplicity could replace logistic regression and log-linear analysis that, in dealing with their limitations and defects, have grown complicated and convoluted.
