Focus on quantitative methods : The analysis of the data for two-way contingency tables.
One of the best ways, if not the best way, to analyze data displayed in a two-way contingency table is to use a method originally due to Williams (1952) and later embellished upon by Guttman (1971) and others.
This method applies the principles of canonical correlation analysis to contingency table data and obviates the need for the a priori specification of scale values for the two variables whose relationship is explored.
In this article the method is described and compared with other approaches, and several examples of its application are provided.
