Analysis of categorical data

These are statistical procedures which can be used for the analysis of categorical data:

* regression
* analysis of variance
* linear modeling
* log-linear modeling
* logistic regression
* repeated measures analysis
* simple correspondence analysis
* multiple correspondence analysis
* contingency table
* latent class model
* log-linear model
* Burt table
* binary table
* frequency table
* chi-square statistics
* odds ratios
* Correlation (statistics)
* Fisher's exact test
* stratified analysis
* Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel statistics
* common relative risk
* binomial proportions
* measures of agreement
* McNemar's test
* Kappa statistics
* generalized linear models
* Wald test
* generalized estimating equation
* correspondence analysis
