The Structure of Social Relationships: Cross-Classifications of Mobility, Kinship, and Friendship.
Hauser, Robert M.
A multiplicative (loglinear) model for square tables or other cross-classifications is helpful in locating cells where counts are relatively dense or sparse. This model helps to eliminate the confounding prevalence and interaction effects. It yields a parsimonious set of parameters which describe the table, and goodness of fit can be assessed with standard inferential procedures. A multiplicative specification which fits a particular cross-classification may be obtained in several ways. The model is illustrated using data on the occupational mobility of American men, on the educational attainment of Wisconsin sibling pairs, and on the occupations of male Detroit friendship-pairs.
