- QUOTE: This section discusses analysis of experiments or observational studies with a categorical outcome and a single categorical explanatory variable. We have already discussed methods for analysis of data with a quantitative outcome and categorical explanatory variable(s) (ANOVA and ANCOVA). The methods in this section are also useful for observational data with two categorical "outcomes" and no explanatory variable.
