Synopses & Reviews
From the reviews of the First Edition.
"An interesting, useful, and well-written book on logistic regression models . . . Hosmer and Lemeshow have used very little mathematics, have presented difficult concepts heuristically and through illustrative examples, and have included references."
—Choice
"Well written, clearly organized, and comprehensive . . . the authors carefully walk the reader through the estimation of interpretation of coefficients from a wide variety of logistic regression models . . . their careful explication of the quantitative re-expression of coefficients from these various models is excellent."
—Contemporary Sociology
"An extremely well-written book that will certainly prove an invaluable acquisition to the practicing statistician who finds other literature on analysis of discrete data hard to follow or heavily theoretical."
—The Statistician
In this revised and updated edition of their popular book, David Hosmer and Stanley Lemeshow continue to provide an amazingly accessible introduction to the logistic regression model while incorporating advances of the last decade, including a variety of software packages for the analysis of data sets. Hosmer and Lemeshow extend the discussion from biostatistics and epidemiology to cutting-edge applications in data mining and machine learning, guiding readers step-by-step through the use of modeling techniques for dichotomous data in diverse fields. Ample new topics and expanded discussions of existing material are accompanied by a wealth of real-world examples-with extensive data sets available over the Internet.
Review
"This well written, organized, comprehensive, and useful book will be appreciated by graduate students and researchers." (

Synopsis
Since the late 1960s the logistic regression (LR) model has become the standard method for regression analysis of dichotomous data in many fields, especially in the health sciences. This text offers an introduction to the LR model and examines its use in methods for modelling.

Synopsis
Die logistische Regression (LR) gehört seit den 60er Jahren zu den Standardmethoden der Datenanalyse, besonders im Bereich der Medizin. Dieser neu aufgelegte, dabei sorgfältig überarbeitete Band spiegelt die wichtigsten inhaltlichen und technischen Entwicklungen der letzten beiden Jahrzehnte auf diesem Gebiet wieder. Der in mittlerem Schwierigkeitsgrad gehaltene Text eignet sich für Studenten und Praktiker aus der Biostatistik und der Epidemiologie. (09/00)
