A new edition of the definitive guide to logistic regression modelingfor health science and other applications
This thoroughly expanded Third Edition provides an easily accessible introduction to the logistic regression (LR) model and highlights the power of this model by examining the relationship between a dichotomous outcome and a set of covariables.
Applied Logistic Regression, Third Edition emphasizes applications in the health sciences and handpicks topics that best suit the use of modern statistical software. The book provides readers with state-of-the-art techniques for building, interpreting, and assessing the performance of LR models. New and updated features include:
• A chapter on the analysis of correlated outcome data
• A wealth of additional material for topics ranging from Bayesian methods to assessing model fit
• Rich data sets from real-world studies that demonstrate each method under discussion
• Detailed examples and interpretation of the presented results as well as exercises throughout
Applied Logistic Regression, Third Edition is a must-have guide for professionals and researchers who need to model nominal or ordinal scaled outcome variables in public health, medicine, and the social sciences as well as a wide range of other fields and disciplines.
A textbook for part of a graduate survey course, courses of a quarter or semester, and focused short courses for working professionals. Assuming a solid foundation in linear regression methodology and contingency table analysis, biostaticians Hosmer (U. of Massachusetts- Amherst) and Lemeshow (Ohio State U.) introduce the logistic regression model and its use in methods for modeling the relationship between a categorical outcome variable and a set of covariates. The first edition appeared about a decade ago, and the second incorporates theoretical and computational developments since then. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
