4.4. A Four-Way Table

Things are only a little more complicated with four-way tables except that more interactions are possible. Consider Table 4.3, reported by Seeman (1977) based on surveys conducted in France and the United States. In each country, the respondent was asked about his own occupation, his father’s occupation, and whether he considered himself a member of the working class. Occupations were classified into manual and non-manual. Our goal is to estimate a logit model for the dependence of working class identification on the other three variables.
