I have done a backwards LR stepwise logistic regression with a small data set of 22 cases and have a few questions. The full model had four variables and the final model had two significant variables.

1). Is it necessary to put the regression equation in a scientific paper? This was an exploratory study.

2). In the final model, can variable 1 (p = .01, Odds ratio 1.534) be said to be more important than variable 2 (p = .03, Odds ratio 1.006)?

3). In a summary table of parameter estimates, is it necessary to put the constants in the table?

Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Edit: I uploaded the data set and SPSS analysis
