Probability Theory by Tamas Rudas

Book Description

This book intends to give a non-technical introduction to probability theory, as it is used in the social sciences. The topics covered include the concept of probability and its relation to relative frequency, the properties of probability, discrete and continuous random variables, and binomial, uniform, normal and chi-squared distributions. Readers who have taken basic college mathematics will be comfortable with this work, which frequently draws intuition and examples instead of technically involved arguments to make its points. In spite of the elementary level of discussion, the concepts of continuous random variables and distributions are carefully developed. Thus, the book prepares the reader not only for a precise understanding of sampling theory, where discrete probabilities are used, but also to a deeper understanding of most of the statistical techniques applied in social science data analysis, where continuous probability distributions are often referenced.

Odds Ratios in the Analysis of Contingency Tables by Tamas Rudas Odds Ratios in the Analysis of Contingency Tables, Paperback (December 1997)

This volume shows how odds ratios can be used as a framework for understanding log-linear models. Moving systematically from the paradigmatic 2x2 case to more complicated cases, the author defines the odds ratio and demonstrates how it is a measure of association for tabular analysis.
