Subject: problem with logistic regression - linearity to the logit
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Hi, I am a very beginner in stat. Now working on a research which apply
logistic regression. I already entered all the data into SPSS & done with
coding. Now, I presumed I should start with testing the assumption?
So, I tested the linearity of the logit. I created the log for each
continuous IV & ran it using binary logistic, but the output showed such
Warning # 602
>The argument for the natural log function is less than or equal to zero.
>The result has been set to the system-missing value.
The p value all came out to be 0.999 & 1.0. My missing cases were 740 out of
total sample of 800! I think this should be the problem of zero cells? How
to deal with it? Certainly I cannot delete the case, it is so many!
My objective is to find out the existence of the management committee (SRMC)
among public companies.
