Logistic Regression Using the SAS System: Theory and Application
Published on Mar 23, 1999
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.
