Thread: Integrating a continuous predictor in multiple logistic regression?

    Integrating a continuous predictor in multiple logistic regression?




    Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could help tell me if this would be possible.

    I'm doing a health research project were I am using a lot of binary patient factors (gender, comorbidity, type of injury, etc), which I have found to be significant in univariate analysis, and using them to control for confounding in seeing whether my independent variable of interest is significant in correlating with various binary outcome (mortality, presence of a complication, etc.) So far everything seems to work well, but I realized that the multivariate models I've been running do not factor in patient age. Is there anyway to integrate this, or is it mathematically impossible given the analysis? [I'm using SPSS, btw].

    Thank you!

    hi,
    that is the point of logistic regression, continuous predictors vs. a binary outcome. So, no worties.
