The research work that Goodman has done has been concerned with a wide variety of statistical problems, and also with the development of a wide variety of statistical methods for the analysis of data that are of interest in the social and behavioral sciences. He has published approximately 150 articles and four books. His more recent research has been focused mainly on the further development of statistical methods that bring the same kind of rigor to the analysis of qualitative/categorical data that has been available in the analysis of quantitative data.
