2.5 Logistic Regression


The App Logistic Regression is used to study the relationship between a categorical response variable and independent variables by fitting with a logistic function. The response categorical variable can include two levels (Binary), more than two levels (Multinomial) and more than two levels with ordering (Ordinal). Independent variables can be continuous or categorical. The model can be customized.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to perform binary logistic regression.
