**What does logistic regression tell you?**

Logistic regression is used to obtain odds ratio in the presence of more than one explanatory variable. The procedure is quite similar to multiple linear regression, with the exception that the response variable is binomial. The result is the impact of each variable on the odds ratio of the observed event of interest.

### What does a logistic regression tell you?

### When should you use logistic regression?

Logistic Regression is another statistical analysis method borrowed by Machine Learning. It is used when our dependent variable is dichotomous or binary. It just means a variable that has only 2 outputs, for example, A person will survive this accident or not, The student will pass this exam or not.

**What is the difference between multinomial and multiple logistic regression?**

Binomial logistic regression has a dichotomous dependent variable, and multinomial logistic regression extends the approach for situations where the independent variable has more than two categories. Like loglinear analysis, logistic regression is based on probabilities, odds, and odds ratios.

#### What are the types of logistic regression?

There are three main types of logistic regression: binary, multinomial and ordinal.

#### What type of variables are used in logistic regression?

Logistic regression is the statistical technique used to predict the relationship between predictors (our independent variables) and a predicted variable (the dependent variable) where the dependent variable is binary (e.g., sex , response , score , etc…).

**How many variables should be in a logistic regression model?**

As i have earlier said that there are no hard and fast rule for the number of independent variables to select while going to apply logistic regression. While there isjust a thumb rule that you should have atleast 10 cases per independent variables. So if you have 20 predictors the sample should be more than 200.

## Where do you use logistic regression?

Logistic Regression is used when the dependent variable(target) is categorical. For example, To predict whether an email is spam (1) or (0) Whether the tumor is malignant (1) or not (0)

## When should I use logistic regression?

**What is the goal of logistic regression?**

Logistic regression aims to measure the relationship between a categorical dependent variable and one or more independent variables (usually continuous) by plotting the dependent variables’ probability scores.

### Does logistic regression assume normality?

Logistic regression does not make many of the key assumptions of linear regression and general linear models that are based on ordinary least squares algorithms – particularly regarding linearity, normality, homoscedasticity, and measurement level.

### What is logistic regression good for?

Logistic regression analysis is valuable for predicting the likelihood of an event. It helps determine the probabilities between any two classes. In a nutshell, by looking at historical data, logistic regression can predict whether: An email is a spam.

**What are the 3 types of logistic regression?**

#### What is a good sample size for logistic regression?

In conclusion, for observational studies that involve logistic regression in the analysis, this study recommends a minimum sample size of 500 to derive statistics that can represent the parameters in the targeted population.
