    Smile Interpret Transformed Independent Variables




    Dear Forum,

    I ran a logistic regression and one of my Independent variables was transformed with a LG10. I know from normal non transformed Independent Variables in case the exp(b) value is 1.40 that for instance one unit increase of the Independent Variable increase the likelihood by 40% that a specific event is executed.

    But how can I interpret lg10 values? They are all significant but i do not know how to interpret them - assuming the exp(B) is 1.4 for the lg10 variable.

    Anybody Ideas?

    best,

    Simon

    hi,
    unless I miss something this should be something like "a tenfold increase of X increases the odds by 40%"

    regards
