A number of authors have considered multivariate Gaussian models for marginal independence. In this paper we develop models for binary data with the same independence structure. The models can be parameterized based on Möbius inversion and maximum likelihood estimation can be performed using a version of the Iterated Conditional Fitting algorithm. The approach is illustrated on a simple example. Relations to multivariate logistic and dependence ratio models are discussed.
A Note on Multivariate Logistic Models for Contingency Tables
 Austral. J. Statist
, 1997
"... Loglinear models are a widely accepted tool for modeling discrete data given in a contingency table. Although their parameters reflect the interaction structure in the joint distribution of all variables, they do not give information about structures appearing in the margins of the table. This is i ..."

Loglinear models are a widely accepted tool for modeling discrete data given in a contingency table. Although their parameters reflect the interaction structure in the joint distribution of all variables, they do not give information about structures appearing in the margins of the table. This is in contrast to multivariate logistic parameters recently introduced by Glonek & McCullagh (1995). They have as parameters the highest order log odds ratios derived from the joint table and from each marginal table. The link between the cell probabilities and the multivariate logistic parameters is given in Glonek & McCullagh in an algebraic fashion. In this paper we focus on this link, showing that it is derived by general parameter transformations in exponential families. In particular, the connection between the natural, the expectation and the mixed parameterization in exponential families (BarndorffNielsen, 1978) is used. This also yields the derivatives of the likelihood equation and shows properties of the Fisher matrix. Further emphasis is paid to the analysis of independence hypotheses in margins of a contingency table.
Case Influence Analysis in Bayesian Inference
, 1997
"... We demonstrate how case influence analysis, commonly used in regression, can be applied to Bayesian hierarchical models. Draws from the joint posterior distribution of parameters are importance weighted to reflect the effect of deleting each observation in turn; the ensuing changes in the posterior ..."

We demonstrate how case influence analysis, commonly used in regression, can be applied to Bayesian hierarchical models. Draws from the joint posterior distribution of parameters are importance weighted to reflect the effect of deleting each observation in turn; the ensuing changes in the posterior distribution of each parameter are displayed graphically. The procedure is particularly useful when drawing a sample from the posterior distribution requires extensive calculations (as with a Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampler). The structure of hierarchical models, and other models with local dependence, makes the importance weights inexpensive to calculate with little additional programming. Applications to a growth curve model (Gelfand, Hills, RacinePoon, and Smith 1990) and a complex hierarchical model for opinion data (Bradlow 1994) are described. Our focus on case influence on parameters is complementary to other work which measures influence by distances between posterior or predictive...
