## Multivariate logistic regression

Or multiple logistic regression.

Use multiple logistic regression when you have one nominal and two or more measurement variables. The nominal variable is the dependent (Y) variable; you are studying the effect that the independent (X) variables have on the probability of obtaining a particular value of the dependent variable. For example, you might want to know the effect that blood pressure, age, and weight have on the probability that a person will have a heart attack in the next year.
