I am trying to come up with a model to predict a binary dependent solution. I want to incorporate ordinal independant variables as the predictors. Can I run a logistic regression analysis with ordinal variables, or do I need to recode them into dummy variables (0/1)? Or conversely, could I run an ordinal regression analysis using a binary variable? Let me know if my question is clear enough or if I need to clarify anything.
Thanks for the help!
