A (SAS documentation file) (page 1906) on "The LOGISTIC Procedure" gives the following procedure-
proc logistic; model r/n=x1 x2; run;
Here, n represents the number of trials and r represents the number of events.
Question 1: The response variable - r/n will produce proportions, therefore, it's not either 0 or 1. In that case, what kind of logistics model it is? Ordinal?
Question 2: If there are 4 groups formed according to very high, high, medium and low levels of exposure in predicting a disease outcome, and if I want to use r/n as response variable using the proc logistic (as mentioned above) with a single exposure variable, what will be the model expression in terms of pie, alpha and beta? In other words, I have a 4x2 table with 4 levels of exposure, and 2 outcomes- disease and non-disease.
Hope at least one expert will come forward to answer this simple question. Many thanks in advance!
