Can anyone please interpret these results for me i will be highly obliged. Thank you

You need to list the odds ratios, its essentially useless to interpret logistic regression slopes other than the sign. Just report the p value and Odd ratios, it is confusing what the numbers you are listing mean and all you need is the odds ratios and p values.

B = beta-hat, the estimated coefficient slope on the log odds scale
SE = standard error of B
Wald is the statistic test that the B = 0
sig. is the associated p-value for the Wald test statistic.

You can also exponentiate the B to get the odds ratio. Though it would be beneficial to know which variables are categorical and which are continuous.

Yeah my point is all you really need is the OR and P value. Who wastes time looking at the SE or slopes in logistic regression
