This book introduces workers in public health and public affairs to a general analytic methodology proposed by Grizzle, Starmer, and Koch (1969). This methodology is based on applications of the general linear model (the basis for both regression analysis and analysis of variance for continuous data) to categorical data. By categorical data we mean information measured on nominal or ordinal scales or grouped continuous data. Appendix B presents the general linear model in the analysis of variance situation; this appendix serves as a guide for the use of the general linear model with categorical data.
