How to Solve the Logistic Regression Equation for the Probability p.
As discussed previously, in logistic regression the log odds is modeled as a linear function of the variables. That is To solve this equation for , we first apply the exponential function to both sides of the equation: … Continue reading

When to Use Logistic Regression
You should think about using logistic regression when your Y variable takes on only two values. Such a variable is referred to a “binary” or “dichotomous.” “Dichotomous” basically means two categories such as yes/no, defective/nondefective, success/failure, and so on. “Binary” … Continue reading
