I want to do a logistic regression in SPSS. However, since I analyse unemployment spells the subjects are sometimes repeated (violating the independence assumption of the regression). One way of removing the within subject variation is by applying a Genlin model with the repeated subject subcommand (in essence a GEE model). Thus, I tried out a Genlin model with binomal probability and the logit link, comparing it to a standard logistic regression. I used the exact same variables in the two procedures.
However, the results that was delivered from the Genlin procedure was inverted relative to that of the logistic regression. For instance: Exp(B) for women (of the independent variable sex/gender) was just above 2.0 in logistic regression while being at 0.49 in Genlin. The same happened with every independent variable.
- Any suggestions to why the results of the Genlin procedure is inverted?
- Is there any way to get the Genlin results in accordance to the logistic regression?
