[R] can R do the goodman modified multiple regression method?

Dear ronggui,

If memory serves me right, this is a relatively early presentation for
sociologists of loglinear models for contingency tables (in which all the
variables are dichotomous). You can fit such a model in R as a generalised
linear model using glm() or via the loglin() function. The latter, which
works by iterative proportional fitting, will be more similar in approach to
what's in the Goodman paper (but both produce ML estimates).

I hope that this helps,
