### What does error code "outcome = variable_name > 0 predicts data perfectly" indicate when using logistic regression in Stata? [duplicate]

I have a longitudinal dataset and I am trying to create two variables that correspond to two time periods based on specific date ranges (pre- and post-) to be able to analyze the effect of each of ...

### Logistic regression - Exp (B) = 0? and sig is 0.999 or 1? [duplicate]

I'm having an issue with binary logistic regression for a project I'm working on. For some of the variables, I'm receiving a significance value of 0.999 and exp(B) of 0. Is this normal?

### How to detect perfect separation of logistic regression? [duplicate]

I have same error message as in this post. However all my coefficients look normal with no inflated value or standard errors. My question is how can I make sure the error message is a sign of perfect ...

### Error message in logistic regression model [duplicate]

I am trying to understand how both temperature (factor: 6 levels - 20, 23, 26, 29, 32, 35 degrees Celsius) and species (factor: 2 levels HA and AP) affects the likelihood of moving from one life stage ...

### A question about odds ratio: Gaussian vs binomial regression 5 [duplicate]

I am working with a binomial dependent variable (fail=1, not fail=0), and using ratios as independent variables to predict the outcome. My dataset is n=34, so it isn't. I'm using R. When I use the ...

### Is there any intuitive explanation of why logistic regression will not work for perfect separation case? And why adding regularization will fix it?

We have many good discussions about perfect separation in logistic regression. Such as, Logistic regression in R resulted in perfect separation (Hauck-Donner phenomenon). Now what? and Logistic ...

### If logistic regression is a linear classifier why does it fail on linearly separable data?

Logistic regression is a linear model, decision boundary generated is linear. If the data points are linearly separable, then why does Logistic regression fail? Shouldn't it perform better on data ...
