Zusammenfassung: Die logistische Regression ermöglicht die Bestimmung von Risikofaktoren für ein Zielkriterium, wobei das Zielkriterium zweistufig ist, z.B. krank⁄gesund. Aus den Regressionskoeffizienten lässt sich die Stärke der einzelnen Risikofaktoren ermitteln. Anhand eines Beispiels wird das Grundprinzip der logistischen Regression sowie ihre Vorteile erläutert.
Logistic regression is a model used for prediction of an event (e.g. heart attack: yes/no) using several predictor variables whereas the output is confined to values between 0 and 1. The regression coefficients describe the size of the contribution of the risk factor. In this short introduction an example is used to explain the basic principle and the advantages of the logistic regression.
