PURPOSE The purpose of this article is twofold: 1) introducing logistic regression (LR), a multivariable method for modeling the relationship between multiple independent variables and a categorical dependent variable, and 2) examining use and reporting of LR in the nursing literature. [...] Key Method Twenty-three articles published between 2010 and 2011 in the Journal of Korean Academy of Nursing were analyzed for proper use and reporting of LR models. Expand

Impact of Automatic Backward Model Selection Criterion on the Bias of the Parameters in Logistic Regression Model
Logistic regression model is one of the popular mathematical models for analysis of binary data with applications in health, behavioural and statistical sciences. The main mathematical concept under
Gender differences in the relationships between sleep disturbances and academic performance among nursing students: A cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Sleep disturbances were highly prevalent among female and male nursing students, and insomnia was substantially associated with poor academic performance in female nursing students.
A cross-sectional study to determine factors affecting dental and medical students’ preference for virtual learning during the COVID-19 outbreak
TLDR
The results showed that 7.02 % of the students did not change simple health behaviors and 18.43% are not interested in taking the vaccine, implying the importance of enacting new laws for reopening universities, applying high fines for violators, and obligating students to take the vaccine since university settings have high levels of social contact with populations from different communities and countries.
Logistic Regression and Growth Charts to Determine Children Nutritional and Stunting Status: A Review
TLDR
Researchers have found that multinomial logistic regression is the most suitable method to measure children nutritional and stunting status because it can provide more specific results, such as malnutrition, undernutrition, normal nutrition and obese.
The Relationship between Premature Rupture of Membranes and Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes
TLDR
The gestational age in weeks and latent period of premature rupture of membranes were the main determinants of maternal and neonatal outcomes.
Insomnia symptoms in elderly persons - assessment, associated factors and non-pharmacological nursing interventions
The aim of this thesis was to test a tool for assessing insomnia symptoms in elderly persons and to investigate late-life insomnia in terms of associated factors and evidence of non-pharmacological
Heart Disease Prediction (Empirically) Using Logistic Regression Analysis by Using SAS Software
The main objective of the present study is to investigate factors that contribute significantly to enhancing the risk of heart disease as well as accurately predict the overall risk. The dependent

Predicting The Risk of Preeclampsia with History of Hypertension Using Logistic Regression and Naive Bayes
TLDR
In the experimental results, it is found that in the term of accuracy and ROC curve, Logistic Regression has a slightly better performance than the Naive Bayes method.

Logistic regression in the medical literature: standards for use and reporting, with particular attention to one medical domain.
TLDR
Substantial shortcomings were found in both use of LR and reporting of results, and it is recommended that authors, reviewers, and editors pay greater attention to guidelines concerning the use and Reporting of LR models.
Logistic Regression Analysis and Reporting: A Primer
Logistic regression, being well suited for analyzing dichotomous outcomes, has been increasingly applied in social science research. That potential expanded usage demands that researchers, editors,
An Introduction to Logistic Regression Analysis and Reporting
Abstract The purpose of this article is to provide researchers, editors, and readers with a set of guidelines for what to expect in an article using logistic regression techniques. Tables, figures,
Reporting of Multivariable Methods in the Medical Literature
TLDR
More complete reporting of multivariable analysis in the medical literature can improve understanding, interpretation, and perhaps application of these methods.
Applied Logistic Regression
TLDR
Applied Logistic Regression, Third Edition provides an easily accessible introduction to the logistic regression model and highlights the power of this model by examining the relationship between a dichotomous outcome and a set of covariables.
Statistics in Medicine: Calculating confidence intervals for relative risks (odds ratios) and standardised ratios and rates
TLDR
Methods for calculating confidence intervals for other common statistics obtained from medical investigations, including standardised disease ratios and rates in studies of incidence, prevalence, and mortality are presented.
Multivariable prognostic models: issues in developing models, evaluating assumptions and adequacy, and measuring and reducing errors.
TLDR
An easily interpretable index of predictive discrimination as well as methods for assessing calibration of predicted survival probabilities are discussed, applicable to all regression models, but are particularly needed for binary, ordinal, and time-to-event outcomes.

TLDR
An easily interpretable index of predictive discrimination as well as methods for assessing calibration of predicted survival probabilities are discussed, which are applicable to all regression models, but are particularly needed for binary, ordinal, and time-to-event outcomes.
A simulation study of the number of events per variable in logistic regression analysis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that low EPV can lead to major problems, and the regression coefficients were biased in both positive and negative directions, and paradoxical associations (significance in the wrong direction) were increased.
Model performance analysis and model validation in logistic regression
TLDR
A new model validation procedure for a logistic regression model and a methodology for the assessment of the performance of a given model by using an example taken from a management study are described.
