About the Authors
  • This book introduces basic and advanced concepts of categorical regression with a focus on the structuring constituents of regression, including regularization techniques to structure predictors. In addition to standard methods such as the logit and probit model and extensions to multivariate settings, the author presents more recent developments in flexible and high-dimensional regression, which allow weakening of assumptions on the structuring of the predictor and yield fits that are closer to the data. A generalized linear model is used as a unifying framework whenever possible in particular parametric models that are treated within this framework. Many topics not normally included in books on categorical data analysis are treated here, such as nonparametric regression; selection of predictors by regularized estimation procedures; ternative models like the hurdle model and zero-inflated regression models for count data; and non-standard tree-based ensemble methods, which provide excellent tools for prediction and the handling of both nominal and ordered categorical predictors. The book is accompanied an R package that contains data sets and code for all the examples.

    • Covers modern topics such as high-dimensional regression and nonparametric models
    • Can be used as a text for courses on categorical data for students from different fields
    • Written from the perspective of an applied statistician for a focus on basic concepts and applications, rather than formal mathematical theory

    "Regression for Categorical Data is a well-written and nicely organized book. It focuses on the regression analysis of categorical data, including both binary and count data, and introduced up-to-date developments in the field."
