New York, NY: Wiley. xii, 373 p. (2000).

This book is the second edition of a monogragh about logistic regression, which could be used to teach parts of graduate level survey courses, quarter – or semester-long courses, and focused short courses to working professionals. As was the case in the first edition, the primary objective of this second edition is to provide a focused introduction to the logistic regression model and its use in methods for modeling the relationship between a categorical outcome variable and a set of covariates.

Topics that have been added to this edition include: numerous new techniques for model building including determination of scales of continuous covariates; a greatly expanded discussion of assessing model performance; a discussion of logistic regression modeling using complex sample survey data; a comprehensive treatment of the use of logistic regression modeling in matched studies; completely new sections dealing with logistic regression models for multinomial, ordinal and correlated response data, exact methods for logistic regression and sample size issues. The book consists of eight chapters.
