## Logistic Regression Using the SAS System: Theory and Application |

*by Paul D. Allison*

If you are a researcher or student with experience in multiple linear regression and want to learn about logistic regression, Logistic Regression Using the SAS System: Theory and Application is for you! Informal and nontechnical, this book both explains the theory behind logistic regression and looks at all the practical details involved in its implementation using the SAS System. Several social science real-world examples are included in full detail. This book also explains the differences and similarities between the many generalizations of the logistic regression model. The following topics are covered: binary logit analysis, logit analysis of contingency tables, multinomial logit analysis, ordered logit analysis, discrete-choice analysis with the PHREG procedure, and Poisson regression. Other highlights include discussions on how to use the GENMOD procedure to do loglinear analysis and GEE estimation for longitudinal binary data. Only basic knowledge of the SAS DATA step is assumed.
