### Understanding complete separation for logistic regression [duplicate]

Why does logistic regression not converge for a linearly separable data set? For linear separable data sets the model parameters go to infinity when mimizing the error function (according to ...

### Logistic Regression: p values all '1', yet model fits perfectly [duplicate]

I was trying to help a student and was foxed by this Logistic Regression problem and seek your explanation. Here's some economic data. All we have to do is create a model to predict whether the ...

### How to tell which variable is perfectly separated in R [duplicate]

I am running a logistic regression model in R using glm. I received a warning that complete separation occurred. How do I determine which variable is causing this? R doesn't tell you what variable is ...

### How to deal with separation in logistic regression? [duplicate]

I'm running a binary logistic regression on 15 independent variables for 180 observations in Stata (version 11). This I do for four different groups, i.e. four dependent variables. For three, it works ...

### How to deal with a model that can't be fit due to quasi-complete separation? [duplicate]

I am doing a binary logistic regression analysis. I got one categorical predictor with 7 levels. When I try to do this in Minitab 17 I get an error message: "The model could not be fit. Maximum ...

### binomial GLM output hugely affected by a factor level with all zeros [duplicate]

I’m trying to estimate the effects of pest control on rat abundance, but I'm finding that the inclusion of a pest control category that contains all zeros is having huge effects on the results. My ...

### logistic regression - complete/quasi-separation [duplicate]

What is the implication if I don't fix a logistic regression that has complete or quasi separation? can I still read the marginal effects or are they not going to be valid? My exercise is actually ...

### GLM for proportion data in r - with many zeros (or ones) [duplicate]

My understanding is that generalized linear modeling (GLM) is recommended for proportion data. However, this seems to run into problems when a set of data is full of zeros (or ones). For example, a ...

### Logistic Regression Get 100% R-square but no predictors are significant? [duplicate]

How could that be possible? The model is significant too. The null model already predicted 70% correctly. After adding predictors, the model predicts 100%. But no single predictors are significant. I ...

### Logistic regression not converging [duplicate]

I run a multivariable logistic regression in SAS using the main effect/independent variable as continuous and categorical. As a continuous variable the confidence intervals of the odds ratios were ...
