    Which of multiple variables is most significant for a set outcome?




    Hello,

    I'm working on a project where there is a set outcome (a person undergoes a certain medical test), and I have several independent variables that might influence whether the person gets the test or not, such as age, gender, and results from a different medical test. I'm trying to determine which of those variables is the most significant factor in the person undergoing the medical test, and wasn't sure which statistical test is the best to use. Sorry, I'm pretty new to statistics overall.

    I have about 100 people that had the test, and I have the independent variables that go with them. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks much

    What kind of model are you using? With a binary outcome (yes/no), a logistic regression model might be useful.
