### Logistic regression output and probability [duplicate]

What is the interpretation of the number that is the output of the logistic regression function? The logistic function $$f(\vec{x}) = \frac{1}{1+e^{-g(\vec{x})}}$$ (where $g$ is a linear function)...

### Probit or Logit in Generalized Linear Model [duplicate]

I'm trying to apply GLMs on a dataset in which dependent variable Y is dichotomous. I applied either logit and probit models, and probit fitted better than logit model. How do I justify the choice of ...

### What exactly are some fundamental differences between probit model and logistic regression [duplicate]

It seems that both these refer to cases where the regressed (dependent) variable can only take certain values, as opposed to a linear regression. So what is the difference between probit and logistic ...

### What is the meaning of the different links in the binomial family of a GLM model in R? [duplicate]

In the help of the glm command in R, I read the binomial family the links logit, probit, cauchit, (corresponding to logistic, normal and Cauchy CDFs respectively) log and cloglog (...

### Generalized linear model v linear model [duplicate]

Bioinformatician here. I'm wondering what the main differences between both of these approaches is. I just want to clarify that a formal mathematical treatment would likely be too much for me. From ...

### Logit versus Probit [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate: Difference between logit and probit models I have data in which the response variable is binary. So, I fitted logit and probit models and obtained the results. How can I ...

### Meaning of link functions (GLM) [duplicate]

I am performing ordinal regression on several datasets, I have 5 ordered response categories and only one explanatory variable X. For each dataset I run the analysis 3 times, each time using a ...

### Likelihood values from Sigmoid [duplicate]

Repost of Mathemetics StackExchange question. There are multiple doubts of mine associated around this theme: In MLE, we try to find the PDF parameters ($\theta$) which maximise the likelihood of the ...

### Comparison between Logit and Probit models [duplicate]

I'm new in econometrics and I'm working in a probabilistic model and using Stata for this, but when I was going to compare the Logit and Probit I did not know which one win in this case, because there ...

### What is the difference between a "link function" and a "canonical link function" for GLM

What's the difference between terms 'link function' and 'canonical link function'? Also, are there any (theoretical) advantages of using one over the other? For example, a binary response variable ...

### Alternatives to logistic regression in R

I would like as many algorithms that perform the same task as logistic regression. That is algorithms/models that can give a prediction to a binary response (Y) with some explanatory variable (X). ...
