I am working on a study that measures the association between BMI(exposure) and multi level(outcome). I am testing with BMI both continuously and categorically, but the outcome is a score with 4 levels. I am having trouble deciding on correct regression analysis for an outcome of 4 levels. If...
2. ### is expected count for independent variable matters ?

I trying to run a multinomial logistic regression but i want to know does the expected count of each independent variable should be less than 5 before i run the test?
3. ### blank in goodness of fit test in multinomial logistic regression

I run a multinomial logistic regression with dependent variable BECK DEPRESSION INVENTORY LEVEL ( Six categories) and independent variable gender But i got nothing inside the sig column under goodness of fit test I then tried to run the test with BDI LEVEL with gender and year of study (four...
4. ### multinomial logistic regression
