This is partly because most of the important contributions are scattered in various journals and there has not been any systematic effort to integrate the family of association models into a single, coherent framework.

Partial Association Models for Three-Way Tables

The types of association models described in Chapter 2 can be extended easily to the analysis of three-way or multiway cross-classification tables (Agresti, 1983; Agresti & Kezouh, 1983; Becker, 1989a; Becker & Clogg, 1989; Pannekoek, 1985).
