Multiple Regression with Discrete Dependent Variables

John G. Orme and Terri Combs-Orme


This book presents detailed discussions of regression models that are appropriate for discrete dependent variables, including dichotomous, polychotomous, ordered, and count variables. The major challenge in using such analyses lies in the nonlinear relationships between the independent and the dependent variables, which requires the use of link functions, and particularly in interpreting and presenting the findings in ways that are clear and meaningful. Clear and simple language guides the reader briefly through each step of the analysis and presentation of results to enhance understanding of ... More

Keywords: logistic regression, discrete dependent variables, dichotomous variables, polychotomous variables, ordinal variables, count variables, link function
