    Multiple Logistic Regression question




    Greetings, I have three categorical IVs and one categorical DV. However, the DV is a self-reported ranking from 1 to 4 (1= not important, 4 = very important). I want to know if any of the IVs (separately or in combination) predict perceived importance of a training module. My understanding of logistic regression is that the DV should be dichotomous. Currently my DV is not. In this instance, is it acceptable to dichotomize the responses? E.g., scores of 1, 2 = not important, 3,4 = important. Should I be considering another analysis? Thanks for any thoughts?

    Ordinal logistic regression might meet your needs.
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.

    Also, what is your sample size and how many respondents selected each of the 4 individual outcome groups.
