Regression logistic

Postby abis86 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 10:28 am

Goodmorning everyone,

I am conducting a logistic regression to study the possible prediction of a tumor on the basis of a series of parameters recorded on patients two years before their onset ascertained.

The point is that doing binary regression with SPSS, I get that the variables that remain valid in the equation, change when I change between Forward / Backward model (wald etc).

How is it possible?

thank you so much!

It is a different estimation method. With the forward method, you keep adding variables until no more improvement in the model is measured. With backward elimination, you start with all variables and eliminate until no more improvement is possible.
