# Logistic Regression

How to perform a logistic regression in jamovi:

- A correct setup should look similar to this:
- Logistic regression can be found by selecting
`Analyses`

→`Regression`

. If the outcome variable is nominal (as in the above image), select`2 Outcomes`

if it has 2 steps / different values, or`N outcomes`

if it has*more*than 2 steps. If the outcome variable is ordinal (e.g. low, medium, high), select`Ordinal Outcomes`

. - Drag and drop your dependent variable to
`Dependent Variable`

and your predictor to`Covariates`

. - The result is shown in the right panel:
- A little more comprehensive introduction into this statistical method is provided by this two videos, explaining logistic regression with two levels (to predict eg gender or clinical vs. control group ) and with more than two levels (to predict, e.g., food preferences: fast food, healthy food, high protein food, vegan food, etc.).
