Identification of Outlying Cells in Multi-way Tables
by Jong Cheol Lee and Chong Sun Hong
An identification method is proposed in order to detect more than one
outlying cells in multi-way contingency tables. The iterative proportional fitting
method is applied to get expected values of several suspected outlying cells. Since
the proposed method uses minimal sufficient statistics under quasi log-linear models,
expected counts of outlying cells could be estimated under any hierarchical log-linear
models. This method is an extension of the backwards-stepping method of Simonoff (1988)
and requires less iteration to identify outlying cells.
