I ran a binary-logistic regression in SPSS. Block 1 shows that the Omnibus Tests of Model Coefficients is insignificant for step, block and model, p =1.06. However, I have two significant predictors in the Variables in the Equation Table. Because the Omnibus test is insignificant, are my two predictors also insignificant? I am not sure how to report the results.

Thank you for any help! This is part of my dissertation research.

    $\begingroup$ The whole point to the omnibus test is to prevent you from looking at such individual predictors until the omnibus test says that would be worthwhile doing. See stats.stackexchange.com/questions/24720 for further discussion of this situation. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ p=1.06? Is this the kind of p-value that SPSS reports? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I reported the p wrong, SPSS showed p=.106 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Can I share my SPSS output - with a Google Link? I think it would make more sense to look at it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Sure, if you have reason to believe the duplicate doesn't address the question you have. $\endgroup$
