    Logistic reg w/ ratio as predictor




    Is there anything I need to know when using a ratio as an independent variable in the model.

    Is it better to use log(ratio) ?

    Not an easy web search, main hits come up as odds ratio and likelihood ratio.

    So what I am interested in is binary variable predicted by ratio!

    So the web told me so far that using ratio may be OK if its value tends to be centrally locate and not near bounds. I also saw a recommendation of breaking it into its components as individual predictors. That wont work for me in that the ratio is the measure I am interested in.

    Any other suggestion or info I need to know?
