Binary responses are commonly studied in medical and epidemiologic research, for example, the presence or absence of a particular disease, death during surgery, and occurrence of ventricular fibrillation in a dog. Often one wishes to study how a set of predictor variables X is related to a dichotomous response variable Y. The predictors may describe such quantities as treatment assignment, dosage, risk factors, and year of treatment.
