### Why is one parameter estimate so high in logistic regression?

I am doing logistic regression on a model with a dependent variable of 4 different sizes of fish. I originally tried to do ordinal logistic but I ended up binning responses into "small" and "large" ...

### Ordinal regression models vs. nominal regression models

Suppose we are trying to decide whether to use an ordinal regression model or a nominal regression model. If we know that the outcome variable is ordered should we still use a nominal regression model ...

### Steps followed when Binary logistic regression when both dependent and independent variables are binary

I had set of binary variables. To apply logistic regression, I have checked association between dependent and independent variables and considered only those independent variables in the model which ...

### Methods / approach to improve the predictive accuracy of a logistic regression model

The situation: I have a logistic model that should predict a defect (1=defect, 0=no defect). My model uses 4 out of 14 parameters, which are significant for my ...

### How to solve this binomial regression problem

Suppose you have a set of observations that are assumed to be binomial distributed, according to the following rule: $$t_i = \text{Binomial}(n_i,k_i,\phi) \text{ } \forall i \in (1,...,N)$$ $\phi$ ...

### Which one to use Splines / Interaction or both?

I am modeling a binary event of whether a sale will happen or not for an online retailer. I have millions of clicks to refer to. Needless to say the rate of sales happening is very very low (<1%). ...

### Logistic Regression and Inflection Point

We have data with a binary outcome and some covariates. I used logistic regression to model the data. Just a simple analysis, nothing extraordinary. The final output is supposed to be a dose-response ...

### Logistic regression prediction validation

I am try to evaluate a logistic regression with new data using R. I have created the logistic regression using the old data and evaluated that using chi^2 etc. i.e. ...

### Multinomial logistic regression for big data

How do I go about doing a multinomial logistic regression when I have 70 million observations? Is it feasible? It seems that R is out of the question due to memory constraints?

### Logistic regression and maximum entropy

I have read (e.g. here) that a (multinomial) logistic regressor corresponds to a maximum entropy classifier. My question is, how does one end up with the formula for logistic regression starting with ...
