You predict a class if it is given maximum probability by the estimated model. So when some classes are not predicted that is simply because the model never gave them maximum probability. That might just be correct, and not necessary a reason for concern. So I disagree with the answer by @Nitin, proposing oversampling.. You might say: but they did occur in the data. Yes, but it might have been rare occurrences! never really the most probable outcome given the predictors in the model. You didnt give us a context, what your classes represent in the "real world". You have very unbalanced classes. That might be because some classes really are uncommon in your population, or it might be some problems with data collection. You didnt tell us. But it is difficult to see that over (or under)-sampling can achieve anything that cannot be achieved using weights. Even more important, you are using (ordinal) logistic regression, which is not a classifier, see Why isnt Logistic Regression called Logistic ...

Background: Knowledge of utilization of health services and asso- ciated factors is important in planning and delivery of interventions to improve health services coverage. This knowledge is however limited in many developing countries. We determined the preva- lence and factors associated with health services utilization in a rural area of Kenya. Our findings inform the local health management in development of appropriately targeted interventions.
Methods: Design: Cluster sample survey. Population: Residents of Kaloleni sub-County in Kenya.
Participants/respondents: Household key informants. Outcomes: (i) History of illness for household members and (ii) health services utilization in the preceding month, (iii) factors associated with health services utilization. Analyses: Estimation of prevalence (outcomes i and ii) and random effects logistic regression (outcome iii).
Findings: 1230/6,440 (19.1%, 95% CI: 18.3%-20.2%) household members reported an illness in the month preceding the survey. Of these,

and other continuous variables), the interpretation is that when a students gpa moves 1 unit, the odds of moving from "unlikely" applying to "somewhat likely" or "very likley" applying (or from the lower and middle categories to the high category) are multiplied by 1.85.. One of the assumptions underlying ordinal logistic (and ordinal probit) regression is that the relationship between each pair of outcome groups is the same. In other words, ordinal logistic regression assumes that the coefficients that describe the relationship between, say, the lowest versus all higher categories of the response variable are the same as those that describe the relationship between the next lowest category and all higher categories, etc. This is called the proportional odds assumption or the parallel regression assumption. Because the relationship between all pairs of groups is the same, there is only one set of coefficients. If this was not the case, we would need different sets of coefficients in the model ...

Logistic regression model is a branch of the generalized linear models and is widely used in many areas of scientific research. The logit link function and the binary dependent variable of interest make the logistic regression model distinct from linear regression model. The conclusion drawn from a fitted logistic regression model could be incorrect or misleading when the covariates can not explain and /or predict the response variable accurately based on the fitted model- that is, lack-of-fit is present in the fitted logistic regression model. The current goodness-of-fit tests can be roughly categorized into four types. (1) The tests are based on covariate patterns, e.g., Pearsons Chi-square test, Deviance D test, and Osius and Rojeks normal approximation test. (2) Hosmer-Lemeshows C and Hosmer-Lemeshows H tests are based on the estimated probabilities. (3) Score tests are based on the comparison of two models, where the assumed logistic regression model is embedded into a more general ...

Illustration:. FYI there are 4 variables: Variable 1 (independent, coded 0/1) Variable 2 (independent, coded 0/1) Variable 3 (independent, coded 0/1) & the Dependent (coded 0/1). Model 1 Logistic regression including direct effects of all independents on the dependent. Normal results. Model 2 Logistic regression including direct effects of all independents on the dependent AND the effects of 2 interaction terms on the dependent. The interaction terms are the product of variable 1 times variable 2 and the product of variable 1 times variable 3. Results include extremely high B and odds-ratio coefficients and standard error values. For example: B=-20.799, SE=40192.876, odds-ratio= 1153680239. *I have also found that if I do NOT include the direct effects of Variable 1 in Model 1 OR if I only include 1 interaction term in Model 2, the effects go back to normal..

STUDY OBJECTIVE--To assess the extent to which the size of socioeconomic inequalities in self reported health varies among industrialised countries. DESIGN--Cross sectional data on the association between educational level and several health indicators were obtained from national health interview surveys. This association was quantified by means of an inequality index based on logistic regression analysis. SETTING--The national, non-institutionalised populations of the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy, the United States, and Canada were studied. The age group was 15-64 years, and the study period was 1983-90. PARTICIPANTS--Representative population samples with the number of respondents ranging from approximately 6000 (Denmark) to 90,000 (the United States) were studied. MAIN RESULTS--For men, the smallest health inequalities were observed for the United Kingdom and Sweden, and the largest inequalities for Italy and the United States. Other countries held an ...

BACKGROUND: The greater participation of women in medicine in recent years, and recent trends showing that doctors of both sexes work fewer hours than in the past, present challenges for medical workforce planning. In this study, we provide a detailed analysis of the characteristics of doctors who choose to work less-than-full-time (LTFT). We aimed to determine the influence of these characteristics on the probability of working LTFT. METHODS: We used data on working patterns obtained from long-term surveys of 10,866 UK-trained doctors. We analysed working patterns at 10 years post-graduation for doctors of five graduating cohorts, 1993, 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2002 (i.e. in the years 2003, 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2012, respectively). We used multivariable binary logistic regression models to examine the influence of a number of personal and professional characteristics on the likelihood of working LTFT in male and female doctors. RESULTS: Across all cohorts, 42 % of women and 7 % of men worked LTFT. For

AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of diabetes and diabetes treatment with risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. METHODS: Histologically confirmed incident cases of postmenopausal breast (N = 916) cancer were recruited from 23 Spanish public hospitals. Population-based controls (N = 1094) were randomly selected from primary care center lists within the catchment areas of the participant hospitals. ORs (95 % CI) were estimated using mixed-effects logistic regression models, using the recruitment center as a random effect term. Breast tumors were classified into hormone receptor positive (ER+ or PR+), HER2+ and triple negative (TN). RESULTS: Diabetes was not associated with the overall risk of breast cancer (OR 1.09; 95 % CI 0.82-1.45), and it was only linked to the risk of developing TN tumors: Among 91 women with TN tumors, 18.7 % were diabetic, while the corresponding figure among controls was 9.9 % (OR 2.25; 95 % CI 1.22-4.15). Regarding treatment, results showed that ...

Linifanib organ failing within the model whatever the univariate evaluation, we required ~70 occasions. In retrospect, simply 5 indie predictors of complete conformity had been place and discovered in the ultimate model, so ~50 occasions were needed, significantly less than the 77 occasions in todays research. To explore the comparative influence of quality of ED treatment (as quantified by the amount of SSC targets attained), illness intensity (as quantified with the PIRO rating [17]), and disposition towards the ICU or ward on mortality inside our research cohort with fairly low mortality, we place these three variables within a binary logistic regression model with in-hospital mortality as an final result measure similarly as defined above. We portrayed the consequences of predictor factors on conformity and medical center mortality using chances ratios (ORs) including 95% self-confidence intervals (CIs). Finally, because time and energy to antibiotics can be an essential predictor of ...

Customer due diligence begins with verifying each customers identity and assessing the associated risk. Assessing customer risk is an essential component of a comprehensive Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) monitoring program.. To meet risk governance regulatory expectations and accurately assess higher-risk customers, financial institutions are modernizing their customer risk rating models and moving their heuristic, rule-based customer risk rating models to statistical models, specifically ordinal logistic regression models.. These statistical models perform better than rules-based models, are easier to justify to the regulators and are easier to update, validate and maintain because they use an established and understood framework. They are quickly becoming standard due to the regulatory pressure to use more scientific approaches. ...

We used a case-control study (596 adults with specific moderate-complex CHDs and 2384 controls). We extracted age, race/ethnicity, electrocardiogram (EKG), and blood tests from routine outpatient visits (1/ 2009 through 12/2012). We used multivariable logistic regression models and a split-sample (4: 1 ratio) approach to develop and internally validate the risk score, respectively. We generated receiver operating characteristic (ROC) c-statistics and Brier scores to assess the ability of models to predict the presence of specific moderate-complex CHDs ...

Primary Care physicians were usually involved in MO process; with 33 cases; (55.9% of the population). Other medical specialties involved in the process were: Internal Medicine 3 (5%); Emergency 7 (11.8%); General Surgery 1 (6%) Digestive 6 (10.1%); and others 9 (15.2%).. The waiting times are shown in table V. The waiting time between the first physician-patient meeting and the date when the patient was referred to the consultant, was the longest one in every cases. Having at least one MO, represented an average of 235.8 days of delay compared to 8.7 days in the group that had no MO.. Delays presented in table VI were classified according to the symptoms. Iron deficiency anemia was the main clinical key related to the increasing delay, which had an average of 300 days in the first time range.. We used multivariable logistic regression model. Only the number of co-morbid medical diseases was associated with the presence of MO when we controlled gender and age (OR: 1.66; CI 95% 1.8-2.35; p = ...

We used longitudinal data from the FinnTwin12-17 study with baseline at age 11-12 and follow-up at ages 14 and 17(1/2), including 4138 individuals. The outcome was self-reported ever use of cannabis or other illicit drugs at age 17(1/2). The potential predictors were measures reported by the twins, their parents or teachers. As individual factors we tested smoking, alcohol use, behavioral and emotional problems; as peer factors: number of smoking friends and acquaintances with drug experience; as family factors: parental substance use, socio-economic status and pre-natal exposure to nicotine. We used logistic regression models, controlling for twinship, age and sex, to compute odds ratios (OR) for each potential predictor. To adjust for within-family confounds, we conducted conditional logistic regressions among 246 twin pairs discordant for drug use ...

Approximate confidence intervals are given for the odds ratios derived from the covariates.. Bootstrap estimates A bootstrap procedure may be used to cross-validate confidence intervals calculated for odds ratios derived from fitted logistic models (Efron and Tibshirani, 1997; Gong, 1986). The bootstrap confidence intervals used here are the bias-corrected type.. The mechanism that StatsDirect uses is to draw a specified number of random samples (with replacement, i.e. some observations are drawn once only, others more than once and some not at all) from your data. These re-samples are fed back into the logistic regression and bootstrap estimates of confidence intervals for the model parameters are made by examining the model parameters calculated at each cycle of the process. The bias statistic shows how much each mean model parameter from the bootstrap distribution deviates from observed model parameters.. Classification and ROC curve The confidence interval given with the likelihood ...

This paper develops a Two-echelon logistics model for recoverable items with lateral supply in a single period in the Army. It derives formulas for distribution and inventory costs, and determines the optimal stock level at a depot and at a base to minimize the backorders. During the period, a Poisson demand and distinct units of operating bases which stocks can be shared are assumed. It allows the lateral supply between operating bases. A two-phase method is used to get solutions to the stock level constrained optimization problem. The outcome of this paper can be applied to lower level of logistics units (e.g. Division, Regiment) rather than higher level of logistics units of the Army (e.g. Corps, Theater) which distribute recoverable items periodically and repair the defective items transited from subordinate units.Dept. of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering.

Trains logistic regression model by discretizing continuous variables via gradient boosting approach. The proposed method tries to achieve a tradeoff between interpretation and prediction accuracy for logistic regression by discretizing the continuous variables. The variable binning is accomplished in a supervised fashion. The model trained by this package is still a single logistic regression model, but not a sequence of logistic regression models. The fitted model object returned from the model training consists of two tables. One table is used to give the boundaries of bins for each continuous variable as well as the corresponding coefficients, and the other one is used for discrete variables. This package can also be used for binning continuous variables for other statistical analysis. ...

Understanding logistic regression analysis (LRA) is essential to making reliable predictions and also for analysing a discrete set of outcomes.

A continuous variable can be measured and ordered, and has an infinite number of values between any two values. For example, the diameters of a sample of tires is a continuous variable. Categorical variables contain a finite, countable number of categories or distinct groups. Categorical data might not have a logical order. For example, categorical predictors include gender, material type, and payment method. If you have a discrete variable, you can decide whether to treat it as a continuous or categorical predictor. A discrete variable can be measured and ordered but it has a countable number of values. For example, the number of people that live in a household is a discrete variable. The decision to treat a discrete variable as continuous or categorical depends on the number of levels, as well as the purpose of the analysis. For more information, go to What are categorical, discrete, and continuous variables?. If you have categorical predictors that are nested or random, use Fit General Linear ...

Purpose: : To determine whether birth weight (BW), Z-score, or centile gives a better prediction of the risk of requiring treatment in a logistic regression model of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and to test for higher order relationships in these covariates. Methods: : A retrospective study of 299 infants of 32 weeks Gestational Age (GA) or less who were screened for ROP at City Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom between 1 January 2001 and 31 October 2009. A stepwise logistic regression model was used to examine the relative merits of GA, BW, Z-score and centile as predictors of the risk of requiring treatment for ROP (termed severe ROP). Then, three logistic regression models were compared: Model 1: GA and BW; Model 2: GA and Z-score; Model 3: GA and centile. Higher order relationships were explored using general linear model (GLM) analysis. Results: : Stepwise logistic regression chose GA and BW as the best predictors of risk of severe ROP. All models were statistically significant ...

N2 - Between March 1988 and December 1989, 180 orthotopic liver transplants were performed in 150 adult patients. We have retrospectively reviewed all charts to determine incidence, timing and etiology of major postoperative infections. Major postoperative infection occurred during the 90-day period following transplantation in 47% of liver transplant patients. Bacterial infections dominated early, while viral and protozoal infections presented later. The most common organisms were Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, and cytomegalovirus. Significant variables associated with infection included pretransplant status, preoperative renal dysfunction, rejection, OKT3 therapy, postoperative renal and ...

The team assessed 541 patients of whom 85 had diabetes mellitus.. The median age at inclusion was 50 years.. The prevalence of diabetes mellitus was 11% for patients with Ishak fibrosis score 4, 13% for Ishak score 5, and 19% for Ishak score 6.. The team used multiple logistic regression analysis to show an increased risk of diabetes mellitus for patients with an elevated body mass index.. The research team noted a decreased risk of diabetes mellitus for patients with higher serum albumin levels.. The researchers found that during a median follow-up of 4 years, 13% of patients with diabetes mellitus versus 6% of patients without diabetes mellitus developed hepatocellular carcinoma.. The 5-year occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma was 11% and 5%, respectively.. The team found that in patients with Ishak 6 cirrhosis, diabetes mellitus was independently associated with the development of hepatocellular carcinoma.. Dr Veldts team concluded, "For patients with chronic Hepatitis C and advanced ...

Underreporting of childhood sexual abuse is a major barrier to obtaining reliable prevalence estimates. We tested the sensitivity and specificity of the face-to-face-interview (FTFI) method by comparing the number of disclosures of forced sex against a more confidential mode of data collection, the sealed-envelope method (SEM). We also report on characteristics of individuals associated with non-disclosure in FTFIs. Secondary analysis of data from a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2014, with n = 3843 children attending primary school in Luwero District, Uganda. Sensitivity and specificity were calculated, and mixed effects logistic regression models tested factors associated with disclosure in one or both modes. In the FTFI, 1.1% (n = 42) of children reported ever experiencing forced sex, compared to 7.0% (n = 268) in the SEM. The FTFI method demonstrated low sensitivity (13.1%, 95%CI 9.3-17.7%) and high specificity (99.8%, 95%CI 99.6-99.9%) in detecting cases of forced sex, when compared to the SEM

Abstract.
Respiratory damage is a main manifestation of severe Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection. Polymorphisms of -403G/A (rs2107538), -28C/G (rs2280788), and In1.1T/C (rs2280789) in chemotactic chemokine ligand 5 (CCL5) have linked with many respiratory diseases. In this study, we explored the possible correlation of CCL5 polymorphisms with severe EV71 infection. Blood samples were obtained from 87 children hospitalized for EV71 infection. Fifty-seven healthy children were enrolled as asymptomatic controls. Genotype and allele frequencies were analyzed by logistic regression analysis. There were statistically significant differences in polymorphisms of CCL5 -403G/A and In1.1T/C for dominant model (P = 0.016; P = 0.027) and additive model (P = 0.010; P = 0.019) between patients with severe EV71 infection and asymptomatic controls. With ordinal logistic regression model analysis, statistically significant differences were found between polymorphisms of CCL5 (-403G/A) (P = 0.034) with the severity of EV71

High levels of social capital and social integration are associated with self-rated health in many developed countries. However, it is not known whether this association extends to non-western and less economically advanced countries. We examine associations between social support, volunteering, and self-rated health in 139 low-, middle- and high-income countries. Data come from the Gallup World Poll, an internationally comparable survey conducted yearly from 2005 to 2009 for those 15 and over. Volunteering was measured by self-reports of volunteering to an organization in the past month. Social support was based on self-reports of access to support from relatives and friends. We started by estimating random coefficient (multi-level) models and then used multivariate logistic regression to model health as a function of social support and volunteering, controlling for age, gender, education, marital status, and religiosity. We found statistically significant evidence of cross-national variation ...

PURPOSE: As global initiatives increase patient access to surgical treatments, there is a need to define optimal levels of perioperative care. Our aim was to describe the relationship between the provision and use of critical care resources and postoperative mortality. METHODS: Planned analysis of data collected during an international 7-day cohort study of adults undergoing elective in-patient surgery. We used risk-adjusted mixed-effects logistic regression models to evaluate the association between admission to critical care immediately after surgery and in-hospital mortality. We evaluated hospital-level associations between mortality and critical care admission immediately after surgery, critical care admission to treat life-threatening complications, and hospital provision of critical care beds. We evaluated the effect of national income using interaction tests. RESULTS: 44,814 patients from 474 hospitals in 27 countries were available for analysis. Death was more frequent amongst patients admitted

Population-based case-control studies are widely used in epidemiology to investigate the association between environmental or occupational exposures over lifetime and the risk of cancer or other chronic diseases. Many of the exposures of interest are protracted and a huge amount of information is often retrospectively collected for each subject about his/her potential past exposure over lifetime. For example, for occupational exposures, the whole occupational history is usually investigated for each subject, and different methods exist to estimate the average dose of exposure at each past job [1-3]. However, only the cumulated estimated dose of exposure at the index age (age at diagnosis for cases and at interview for controls) is usually used in standard logistic regression analyses. Such approach does not use the (retrospective) dynamic information available on the exposure at different ages during lifetime.. A time-dependent weighted Cox (WC) model has recently been proposed to incorporate ...

Background: Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare and highly aggressive form of primary breast cancer. Little is known about the risk factors for IBC, specifically the association with socioeconomic position (SEP).. Methods: The association between breast cancer type (IBC vs. non-IBC) with county-level SEP in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database for cases diagnosed from 2000 to 2007 was examined. County-level SEP characteristics included metropolitan versus non-metropolitan residence, percentage below the poverty level, percentage less than high-school graduate, and an index combining the poverty and high-school variables. IBC and non-IBC age-adjusted incidence rates were calculated, stratified on SEP and race/ethnicity. The odds of IBC versus non-IBC given a particular SEP characteristic, adjusting for age and race/ethnicity, was examined through fitting of hierarchical logistic regression models (HLM).. Results: Incidence rates for IBC generally increased as SEP ...

Although I enjoyed this paper quite a bit, and it seemed perfect fodder for some clever fun in photoshop (actually by E. Lu, see above), I also felt that that the study had some methodologically weak areas. For instance, the authors failed to take advantage of a new phylogenetic logistic regression procedure by Ives & Garland [2010], which seems ideally suited to their data. (In their defense, the method is brand new.) Consequently, however, the authors found themselves of the unfortunate position of using an arbitrary scoring system to estimate size-related reproductive skew: adding 1 point for the presence of "pronounced sexual dichromatism," for example, and subtracting 1 point for "alternative reproductive tactics" (which might decrease the advantage of large male size) . With a phylogenetic multivariable logistic regression, the authors could have tested for an association between the log-odds of protogyny and each of their proxies for size-based reproductive skew (which also included ...

Background: Mental health has been a largely neglected issue among men who have sex with men (MSM) across the world. This study examines the prevalence and correlates of depression among MSM. Data and Methods: Data for this study are used from a cross-sectional Behavioral Tracking Survey-2012 conducted among 1176 MSM from Andhra Pradesh (undivided), a southern state of India. Depression of MSM was assessed using Patient Health Questionnaire-2 scale. Descriptive statistics, bivariate and multivariate logistic regression techniques were used for analysis. Results: More than one-third of MSMs (35%) in the survey reported to have depression. The likelihood of experiencing depression was 5 times higher among MSM who were mobile for sex work outside their place of residence (55% vs 17%, AOR: 5.2, 95% CI: 3.7 - 7.3) and had experienced physical or sexual violence (82% vs 33%, AOR: 6.0, 95% CI: 2.1 - 17.4) than their respective counterparts. Rates of depression were significantly higher among MSM who had

Ever since S/4 HANA was announced there was mention about Simple Finance and Simple Logistics. After Simple Finance release by SAP there is fair amount of documentation around key data model simplification and thereby leading to performance optimisation, but hardly any details on Simple Logistics is available in public domain. At the same time from business standpoint Finance and Logistics go hand in hand and surely consultants / partners / customers are waiting to understand how Logistics will be "Simplified". Drawing parallel from Simple Finance the expectation was to have key data model simplification and some key functional improvements in Logistics area. To compound the problem Logistics in core ERP is quite a broad functional area covering MM, PP, SD modules and lot of sub modules. In reality there is lot of expectation with the mention of "Simple Logistics".. In continuation of learning and riding ahead in S/4 HANA journey, I have been exploring on Simple Logistics for past couple of ...

This paper develops a localized approach to elastic net logistic regression, extending previous research describing a localized elastic net as an extension to a localized ridge regression or a localized lasso. All such models have the objective to capture data relationships that vary across space. Geographically weighted elastic net logistic regression is first evaluated through a simulation experiment and shown to provide a robust approach for local model selection and alleviating local collinearity, before application to two case studies: county-level voting patterns in the 2016 USA presidential election, examining the spatial structure of socio-economic factors associated with voting for Trump, and a species presence-absence data set linked to explanatory environmental and climatic factors at gridded locations covering mainland USA. The approach is compared with other logistic regressions. It improves prediction for the election case study only which exhibits much greater spatial ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Technology credit scoring model with fuzzy logistic regression. AU - Sohn, So Young. AU - Kim, Dong Ha. AU - Yoon, Jin Hee. PY - 2016/6/1. Y1 - 2016/6/1. N2 - Technology credit scoring models have been used to screen loan applicant firms based on their technology. Typically a logistic regression model is employed to relate the probability of a loan default of the firms with several evaluation attributes associated with technology. However, these attributes are evaluated in linguistic expressions represented by fuzzy number. Besides, the possibility of loan default can be described in verbal terms as well. To handle these fuzzy input and output data, we proposed a fuzzy credit scoring model that can be applied to predict the default possibility of loan for a firm that is approved based on its technology. The method of fuzzy logistic regression as an appropriate prediction approach for credit scoring with fuzzy input and output was presented in this study. The performance of the ...

When outcomes are binary, the c-statistic (equivalent to the area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve) is a standard measure of the predictive accuracy of a logistic regression model. An analytical expression was derived under the assumption that a continuous explanatory variable follows a normal distribution in those with and without the condition. We then conducted an extensive set of Monte Carlo simulations to examine whether the expressions derived under the assumption of binormality allowed for accurate prediction of the empirical c-statistic when the explanatory variable followed a normal distribution in the combined sample of those with and without the condition. We also examine the accuracy of the predicted c-statistic when the explanatory variable followed a gamma, log-normal or uniform distribution in combined sample of those with and without the condition. Under the assumption of binormality with equality of variances, the c-statistic follows a standard normal cumulative

First party logistics providers (1PL) are single service providers in a specific geographic area that specialize in certain goods or shipping methods. Examples are: carrying companies, port operators, depot companies. The logistics department of a producing firm can also be a first party logistics provider if they have own transport assets and warehouses.[10]. Second party logistics providers (2PL) are service providers which provide their specialized logistics services in a larger (national) geographical area than the 1PL do. Often there are frame contracts between the 2PL and the customer, which regulate the conditions for the transport duties that are mostly placed short term. 2PLs provide own and external logistics resources like trucks, forklifts, warehouses etc. for transport, handling of cargo or warehouse management activities.[10] Second party logistics arose in the course of the globalization and the uprising trend of lean management, when the companies began to outsource their ...

Functions to assess the goodness of fit of binary, multinomial and ordinal logistic models.
Included are the Hosmer-Lemeshow tests (binary, multinomial and ordinal) and the Lipsitz and
Pulkstenis-Robinson tests (ordinal).

As we covered above, one of these predictors is binary and the other is continuous. This means we have to interpret the two a little bit differently. First is the binary score: gender. We first look at the p value. It is below .05, telling us that it is significant, and we can safely interpret the odds ratio. To interpret this result, we have to know what a 0 (low) and a 1 (high) correspond to, and our researcher recalls that she coded this as 0 = female, and 1 = male. She finds this to be a good thing because when the odds ratio is greater than 1, it describes a positive relationship. The positive relationship means that as gender "increases," the odds of being eaten increases. Based on our coding, an "increase" in gender means a gender of 1 instead of 0 - in other words, being male. This can be interpreted to mean that being in the (1) group, or being male, puts you at 5 times greater odds of being eaten.. If the odds ratio for gender had been below 1, she would have been in trouble, as an ...

Median hsTnT levels were higher in patients aged ≥75 years of age (n=248) compared with younger (,75 years; n=434) patients (30.53 (13.72-67.51) versus 15.24 (4.90-41.74) pg·mL−1, respectively; p,0.001). In a multivariable logistic regression analysis, the predictive value of hsTnT ≥14 pg·mL−1 remained significant after adjustment for age, renal insufficiency and symptom duration (OR 14.26, 95% CI 1.87-108.53; p=0.010). By ROC analysis, an optimised hsTnT cut-off value of 12 pg·mL−1 for patients aged ,75 years (AUC 0.76, 95% CI 0.66-0.85; p=0.002), and of 45 pg·mL−1 for elderly patients (AUC 0.74, 95% CI 0.64-0.84; p=0.005) were calculated for prediction of an adverse 30-day outcome. Reclassification of elderly patients using the age-optimised cut-off value of 45 pg·mL−1 provided better risk prediction compared with the established hsTnT cut-off value of 14 pg·mL−1 (NRI 0.18, 95% CI 0.01-0.36; p=0.041) (table 2). Alternatively, in patients aged ,75 years, the age-optimised ...

I m trying to build a credit risk model (an application scorecard) based on the logistic regression for my master thesis. A have a real data from 2006 to 2010 including crisis. The whole model has a power 60% which is good. But problem is that power in particular years is decreasing under the acceptable threshold. In particular years a have approximately 1500, 1500, 1500, 1000, 500 cases. In the 2 last years is less ratio between number of bad clients and total cases in that year (default rate) due to restriction in approving process and less number of accepted clients. It s clear that the power in time will be decreasing (due to a decreasing amount of data and default rate), but it s under 40% (not acceptable ...

Descriptive statistics include means and SDs for continuous variables and numbers and percentages for categorical variables. For analyses of associations of A1C with primary outcomes, A1C was considered as both a categorical and continuous variable in multiple logistic regression analyses. For other outcomes and maternal glucose, only continuous variable results are presented. In categorical analyses, A1C was divided into seven categories with ∼50% of all values in the two lowest categories and 3 and 1% in the two highest categories, respectively. These categories were selected to provide numbers in each category that were similar to those previously reported for maternal glucose (9).. We also created a composite OGTT measure that used all three glucose measures. This variable was created by calculating z-scores for FPG, 1-h PG, and 2-h PG by subtracting the appropriate HAPO mean from each womans glucose measurements, dividing by the corresponding SD, and then summing the three resulting ...
