Fitting cross-classification table data to models when observations are subject to classification error
- 66 Downloads
Individuals are classified in a cross-classification table where two behavioral observations on each individual determine the classification. The problem is to test certain structural models assumed to underlie the cross-classified observations. A minimum chi-square test procedure is proposed.
