Abstract

In the health sciences it is quite common to carry out studies designed to determine the influence of one or more variables upon a given response variable. When this response variable is numerical, simple or multiple regression techniques are used, depending on the case. If the response variable is a qualitative variable (dichotomic or polychotomic), as for example the presence or absence of a disease, linear regression methodology is not applicable, and simple or multinomial logistic regression is used, as applicable.
