A 1 percent increase in stroke quality in 2007/8 is associated with a reduction in the log odds
ratio of death of 0.
The table also lists log odds
estimates ranked from highest to lowest in magnitude by absolute value.
Since parameters based on log odds
are difficult to interpret, they are usually converted to coefficients based on the odds of the dependent variable.
In this study, for instance, when looking at students with IEPs, variable B is interpreted by thinking, "If a student has an IEP, the predicted log odds
of placement in algebra or above by eighth grade changes by this much (while holding other variables constant).
1] is the log odds
of skin lesion recovery associated with a [log.
The densities of livestock were right skewed; thus, we log-transformed the variables to create a more linear relationship between animal density and log odds
Sometimes, it is convenient to work with log odds
ratios instead of probabilities; so, I denote [rho] = log(p/(1 - p)).
The final models are shown below (Table 2) as coefficients relative to the log odds
of shell disease development.
This procedure involves the calculation of log odds
(4), converted into probabilities (5), by allowing the values of expatriate slack to vary along the entire range of its actual values (minimum = -0.
The magnitudes of the coefficients in these equations are difficult to interpret, as they represent the change in the log odds
ratio associated with a unit change in a particular independent variable.
Based on Table 3, the log odds
ratio was calculated as 1.
First, rather than attempting to model the murder rate by state, we model the log odds
of being murdered (17) because this latter measure avoids the implicit truncation problems of the former.
