Abstract: For the analysis of contingency tables with ordinal categories, the interest is whether each marginal distribution is homogeneous or not. It may be more appropriate to apply a certain marginal inhomogeneity model when the marginal homogeneity model does not fit. The generalized marginal inhomogeneity model is proposed by using a continuous cumulative distribution function. Using this model, we prove that the marginal homogeneity model is decomposed into two models. We investigate the model-fitting by numerical simulations.
