Dummy variables in Logistic regression

Postby magistry01 » Mon Nov 18, 2013 12:00 am

Hi-

I'm interested in running a Logistic regression using gender as my dependent variable and would like to use multiple categorical independent variables (special education classification, school) in my model. Is this recommended, if so, would I code all variables similarly, or is there another method that is more appropriate/recommended?


I have SPSS version 21. Thank you

I'm not sure what the actual question is. What is being recommended? And when you mention "code all variables similarly," what do you want to achieve with the said "coding" and similarly to what?

Binary LR sounds appropriate but take a look at its Help & Case Study
