From the Publisher: If you are a researcher or student with experience in multiple linear regression and want to learn about logistic regression, this book is for you! Informal and nontechnical, this book both explains the theory behind logistic regression and looks at all the practical details involved in its implementation using SAS. Several social science real-world examples are included in full detail. This book also explains the differences and similarities among the many generalizations of the logistic regression model. The following topics are covered: binary logit analysis, logit analysis of contingency tables, multinomial logit analysis, ordered logit analysis, discrete-choice analysis with the PHREG procedure, and Poisson regression. Other highlights include discussions on how to use the GENMOD procedure to do loglinear analysis and GEE estimation for longitudinal binary data. Only basic knowledge of the SAS DATA step is assumed. Supports releases 6.12 and higher of SAS software. Author Biography: Paul D. Allison Paul D. Allison is a Professor of Sociology and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvaniawhere he teaches graduate courses in survival analysis and categorical data analysis. Every summer he teaches a five-day workshop about logistic regression that is attended by researchers from around the United States and Canada. Besides his numerous statistical papers, he has also published extensively on the subject of scientists' careers.

ABSTRACTFacial pain and other symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are rather common in the adult population. According to clinical studies, psychological factors play an important role in the etiology and maintenance of these symptoms. On the other hand, chronic pain can cause depression. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between symptoms of TMD and depression in a large population sample of young adults. The study was a part of the 31-year follow-up study of the No...

This paper investigates how the presence of other adults in the household influences employment rates and inequality among single mothers who are White, Black, Mexican, or Puerto Rican. Data from the 1998 to 2000 Current Population Surveys shows that Black single mothers experience no employment inequality compared to Whites if they are cohabiting outside marriage or hosting an extended household. For Black single mothers, the employment disadvantage is concentrated among those without other adu...

Diabetes mellitus, a prevalent disorder worldwide, is associated with systemic adverse sequelae, such as wound healing alterations, which may affect osseointegration of dental implants. This prospective multicenter study assessed the success of 2-stage endosseous root-form implants (3 different implant systems) placed in the mandibular symphysis of 89 male type 2 diabetic subjects. The implants were uncovered approximately 4 months after placement, restored with an implant-supported, Hader bar c...

The aim of this paper is the evaluation of the effects of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) used by enterprises on the partnership. In order to realize this objective, an analysis has been undertaken by using data collected in 2003 in 2000 enterprises installed in Luxembourg, enterprises which cover almost all economic branches. The results show that different kinds of ICT have not the same effect on the probability to work in partnership relative to not working in partnership. On...

Snowy Plovers (Charadrius alexandrinus) and Wilson's Plovers (Charadrius wilsonia) are two shorebird species that nest along the Gulf Coast of the US. We modeled the daily nest survival of both species in the lower Laguna Madre region of Texas during the 2003 and 2004 breeding seasons as a function of nest age, year, day in the season, maximum daily temperature, daily precipitation, and habitat features at three spatial scales (microhabitat, a 25-m radius of the nest, and landscape). Daily survi...

Many juveniles are at high risk for delinquency and drug abuse by virtue of the characteristics of their neighborhoods, which are often economically impoverished, socially unstable, physically neglected, and rife with crime, drug use, and drug selling. However, a significant proportion of these youth do not engage in deviant behavior, while others participate to varying degrees. This study examined what factors discriminate between high-risk youth who do and who do not exhibit deviant behavior. ...

Objective The Leapfrog CPOE evaluation tool has been promoted as a means of monitoring computerized physician order entry (CPOE). We sought to determine the relationship between Leapfrog scores and the rates of preventable adverse drug events (ADE) and potential ADE. Materials and methods A cross-sectional study of 1000 adult admissions in five community hospitals from October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2010 was performed. Observed rates of preventable ADE and potential ADE were compared with scor...

Although depression is considered the most common mental disorder, knowledge on its social distribution in the general population in Belgium is still limited. In this paper focus is on risk factors for depression in two representative samples of adults in Belgium, aged 16 or more. In the cross-sectional Health Interview Survey of 2001 (N=9413), the Symptom Checklist 90 depression scale is used to measure depressive experiences in the week prior to the interview. In the longitudinal Panel Study o...
