This course gives a practical, non-mathematical introduction to the use of logistic regression in the analysis of categorical outcomes.
Logistic regression is a widely used technique for the analysis of categorical data, offering increased flexibility compard to the traditional analysis of crosstables. A binary outcome can be predicted using one or more categorical variables, continuous variables or combinations thereof.
Each lesson is a combination of theoretical introductions followed by hands-on exercises in the software package SPSS.
