Logistic models

Logistic models

statistical models which describe the relationship between a qualitative dependent variable (that is, one which can take only certain discrete values, such as the presence or absence of a disease) and an independent variable. A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individuals risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
