Logistic regression

Logistic regression predicts the likelihood of an event when evaluating a categorical, binary dependent variable. If the dependent variable has more than two outcome categories, multinomial logistic regression must be used, unless the data values are ordered, in which ordered logistic regression is used. Linear regression predicts dependent variables based on a continuous outcome, but logistic regression works with a limited number of categories.
