So far we have only considered log-linear models for two-dimensional tables. Contingency tables of more than two-dimensions are very common. In this chapter we shall focus on three-dimensional tables and consider log-linear models for such tables. We shall also discuss the concept of collapsibility. In the past many investigators have opted to collapse over variables and examine the two-way tables so generated. Duncalfe (1980) explains that this may be a dangerous procedure and refers to Simpson's paradox. Tables of more than three-dimensions are discussed briefly. This is followed by an example of the analysis of a three-dimensional table.
