Abstract

The Uniform Association (UA) and Quasi-Uniform Association (QUA) models are used for analysis of two-way square contingency tables with ordered categories. When the QUA model does not fit the data, one wants to measure the degree of departure from the quasi-uniform association model. The degree of the departure from the model is calculated by usingthe power divergence statistics. In this study, as an alternative to measures in the literature, a measure to estimate the degree of departure from the QUA model is suggested. This suggested measure allows us to compare the several R×R tables in terms of the departure from the model. The measures are compared by the simulation study and discussed by three unaided distance vision data.
