Abstract : A multidimensional descriptive study of feline lymphoma was performed using age, sex, cell type, and tumor location of 1733 cases. The interactions between these four variables were determined and interpreted statistically. Particular consideration was given to the relationships of age to tumor location, age to sex, and tumor location to cell type, which were shown to be the major interactons in the study. The use of computer analysis of the multiway frequency table is discussed. The suggestion is offered that investigators consider the use of the multiway frequence table where possible in future studies of various diseases to enhance the depth of their conclusions. (Author)
