Abstract

For the analysis of C × C square contingency tables, we usually estimate using a statistical model an unknown probability distribution with high confidence from obtained observations. The statistical model that fits the data well and is easy to interpret is preferred. The anti-sum-symmetry (ASS) and anti-conditional sum-symmetry (ACSS) models have a structure that the ratio of the probability with which the sum of row and column levels is t, for t = 2, . . . , C, and the probability with which the sum of row and column levels is 2(C + 1) − t is always one and constant, respectively. This study proposes two kinds of models that the ratio of those changes exponentially depending on the sum of row and column levels. This study also gives the decomposition theorems of the ASS model using the proposed models. Moreover, we show that the value of the likelihood ratio chi-squared statistics for the ASS model is asymptotically equivalent to the sum of those for the decomposed models. We evaluate the advantage of the proposed models by applying they to a single data set of real-world grip strength data.
