What is Binary Logistic Regression?

Binary logistic regression is a statistical method used to predict a binary outcome (yes/no, true/false, sick/healthy) based on one or more continuous independent variables. It is often referred to as logistic regression but is specifically called binary logistic regression in Minitab. This technique is widely used in various fields to model binary outcomes and understand the relationships between variables.

What Will You Learn?

  • Purpose of Binary Logistic Regression: Understand the reasons for using logistic regression and its applications.
  • Concept of Odds and ln(Odds): Learn about odds, their logarithmic transformation, and how they are used in logistic regression.
  • Logistic Regression Equation: Grasp the formulation and interpretation of the logistic regression equation.
  • Odds Ratio: Calculate and interpret odds ratios to understand the effect of predictors.
  • Confusion Matrix: Analyze model performance using the confusion matrix.
  • Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) Curve: Evaluate model accuracy with the ROC curve.
  • R-Squared in Context of Logistic Regression: Understand the role of R-squared in logistic regression.
