Important Special Cases of the Logistic Model

  • David G. Kleinbaum
Part of the Statistics in the Health sciences book series (SBH)


In this chapter, several important special cases of the logistic model involving a single (0, 1) exposure variable are considered with their corresponding odds ratio expressions. In particular, focus is on defining the independent variables that go into the model and on computing the odds ratio for each special case. Models that account for the potential confounding effects and potential interaction effects of covariates are emphasized.
