Printerfriendly version
This is the first time we are dealing with continuous variables in this course. Just like in any ordinary linear regression, the covariates may be both discrete and continuous. The basic principle for logistic regression is the same whether covariates are discrete or continuous, but some adjustments are necessary for goodnessoffit testing. HosmerLemeshaw statistic is very useful in this case.
