Originating in economics but now used in a variety of disciplines, including medicine, epidemiology and the social sciences, this book provides accessible coverage of the theoretical foundations of the Logit model as well as its applications to concrete problems. It is written not only for economists but for researchers working in disciplines where it is necessary to model qualitative random variables. J.S. Cramer has also provided data sets on which to practice Logit analysis.
