Unformatted text preview: Logistic Regression • Logistic Regression - Dichotomous Response variable and numeric and/or categorical explanatory variable(s) – Goal: Model the probability of a particular as a function of the predictor variable(s) – Problem: Probabilities are bounded between 0 and 1 • Distribution of Responses: Binomial • Link Function: - = μ μ μ 1 log ) ( g Logistic Regression with 1 Predictor • Response - Presence/Absence of characteristic • Predictor - Numeric variable observed for each case • Model - π ( x ) ≡ Probability of presence at predictor level x x x e e x β α β α π + + + = 1 ) ( • β = 0 ⇒ P(Presence) is the same at each level of x • β > 0 ⇒ P(Presence) increases as x increases • β < 0 ⇒ P(Presence) decreases as x increases Logistic Regression with 1 Predictor • α, β are unknown parameters and must be estimated using statistical software such as SPSS, SAS, or STATA · Primary interest in estimating and testing hypotheses regarding β · Large-Sample test (Wald Test): · H : β = 0 H A : β ≠ ) ( : : . . : . . 2 2 2 1 , 2 2 ^ ^ 2 ^ o b s o b s o b s X P v a l P X R R X S T ≥- ≥ = χ χ σ β α β Example - Rizatriptan for Migraine • Response - Complete Pain Relief at 2 hours (Yes/No) • Predictor - Dose ( mg ): Placebo (0),2.5,5,10 Dose # Patients # Relieved % Relieved 67 2 3.0 2.5 75 7 9.3 5 130 29 22.3 10 145 40 27.6 Example - Rizatriptan for Migraine (SPSS) Variables in the Equation .165 .037 19.819 1 .000 1.180-2.490 .285 76.456 1 .000 .083 DOSE Constant Step 1 a B S.E.
