Subject: Re: odds ratios for continuous predictors in logistic regression
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
The coefficient of an independent variable in a log reg output indicates
how much the odds ratio increases when that independent variable
increases by one unit.
By the way, the "odds" of an event equal the probability of the event
divided by the probability that the event does not happen, p/(1-p)
