Quick Reference

A model for a square table which classifies individuals into a group whose new location is independent of their old location and a group who never move. The ‘locations’ may be geographical or they may refer to social class, occupation, or views on some subject. The model can provide a good fit to the data without actually making any sense when its implications are examined more closely.
