FREE Webinar - Introduction to Logistic Regression with SigmaXL

by SigmaXL on April 28, 2011

We are happy to announce that we will be hosting another free webinar. Join us on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011 to learn how use SigmaXL's Logistic Regression tools.


Have you ever wondered how researchers determine the odds of lung cancer versus risk factors such as years of smoking and number of cigarettes smoked per day?


Lung cancer (and other diseases) are discrete in nature. You either have cancer or you don't. Years of smoking and number of cigarettes are continuous predictors. So the tool researchers use is Binary Logistic Regression.


Logistic Regression is also a powerful tool to help determine the root causes of manufacturing or transactional defects.
