The first edition of this text has sold over 19,600 copies. However, the use of statistical methods for categorical data has increased dramatically in recent years, particularly for applications in the biomedical and social sciences. A second edition of the introductory version of the book will suit it nicely. Wiley also published a second edition of Categorical Data Analysis, which is an advanced, more technical text, in 2003.
