I am completing a thesis and am running a binary logistic regression in SPSS with several independent variables.

What I need help with is interpreting the results. I know that the "sig" column represents my Rsquare, which is the probability. I don't need to know the stats in and out, just need to be able to intelligently interpret what is or is not statistically significant.

What I don't understand is basically everything else.

- In Block 0 - Beginning block, what does it mean when it says "variables not in the equation"?

- In Block 1: Method = Enter, under the model summary table, what does it mean when it gives a message stating "Estimating terminated at iteration 20 because maximum iterations have been reached. Final solution cannot be found"

- In Block 1: Method = Enter, under the variables in equation table, what do Wald and Exp(B) columns mean?

Thanks for any help!
