Research paper | 31-October-2017


Evaluating the effect of variables on diagnostic measures (sensitivity, specificity, positive, and negative predictive values) is often of interest to clinical researchers. Logistic regression (LR) models can be used to predict diagnostic measures of a screening test. A marginal model framework using generalized estimating equation (GEE) with logit/log link can be used to compare the diagnostic measures between two or more screening tests. These individual modeling approaches to each diagnostic

the highest mortality rates gathered for the period 2016-2018. Owing to the dichotomous form of the studied variable, logistic regression was used. Estimated model parameters and calculated odds ratios allowed to assess the effect of selected factors on road traffic mortality rate. As significant, the type of the perpetrator and the traffic participant, sex and age of the victim, road lighting, and the driver’s experience were selected. It was assessed that pedestrians are the group most

railway crossing, and the maximum speed of trains. Applying the binary model of logistic regression, the probability of accidents at the 337 railway crossings of the country was calculated. Depending on the degree of risk or the probability of accident, the country's railway crossings are ranked. The most dangerous crossings of four regions in the country were identified. Finally, the main conclusions and recommendations are presented.

Modeling alloantibody formation to highincidence red blood cell antigens in immune responders using genotypic data  

;, Immucor, Warren, NJ) was performed on all patient specimens referred for molecular testing over 45 months; serologic and clinical data were analyzed. We used simple and multiple logistic regression to model the risk factors for alloimmunization to an HIA. Of the 2591 patients genotyped, 32 (1.2%) were homozygous for at least one variant predicting absence of an HIA. Of these 32 patients, prior transfusion or pregnancy history was available for 29 (91%). Four susceptible patients made an antibody to an

In this study the benefits arising from the use of the Bayesian approach to predictive modelling will be outlined and exemplified by a linear regression model and a logistic regression model. The impact of informative and non-informative prior on model accuracy will be examined and compared. The data from the Central Statistical Office of Poland describing unemployment in individual districts in Poland will be used. Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods (MCMC) will be employed in modelling.

Changes in delinquency according to socioeconomic status among Finnish adolescents from 2000 to 2015

. Bivariate associations were studied using binomial logistic regression results shown as odds ratios with 95 % confidence intervals. Delinquency was entered as dependent variable. In the first model, categorical time periods (2000-2001, 2002-2003, 2004-2005, 2006-2007, 2008-2009, 2010-2011, 2012-2013, 2014-2015) were entered as independent factors using the time period 2000-2001 as a reference category. In the second model, family structure (living with both parents/other), parental unemployment in the

Bankruptcy prediction of small- and medium-sized enterprises in Poland based on the LDA and SVM methods

. Since the Altman Z-Score model was devised, numerous studies on bankruptcy prediction have been written. Most of them involve the application of traditional methods, including linear discriminant analysis (LDA), logistic regression and probit analysis. However, most recent studies in the area of bankruptcy prediction focus on more advanced methods, such as case-based reasoning, genetic algorithms and neural networks. In this paper, the effectiveness of LDA and SVM predictions were compared. A sample

Multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to examine associations of network features with each prevention and sex behavior outcome, while also controlling for individual and structural factors. Adjusted odds ratios (aORs) and their 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated. All models were fit using RDS sampling weights, specifically Gile’s Sequential Sampling (SS) estimator (Gile, 2011; Gile & Handcock, 2010), an

Of the 138 adolescents, 39% scored positive on the BDI for depressive symptoms, occurring more commonly in girls. Logistic regression showed that the most significant variables associated with depressive symptoms were female gender, high psychological distress, and low self-esteem. Symptoms of depression served as a mediator between gender and self-esteem and the blood

Victimization in traditional and cyberbullying as risk factors for substance use, self-harm and suicide attempts in high school students

statistical software (version 23). We used a binary logistic regression method in which an Odds Ratio can be calculated for a nominal dependent variable (for example, smoking cigarette: 1-Yes, 0-No) through combination of several independent variables. In this study, we used traditional and cyber victimization and gender as predictors for substance use, self-harm, and suicide. The statistical significance level was considered as p < 0.05. As some of the students did not properly answer the questions, 25

Whether the mediator was present before the outcome variable is an assumption that is made, as we cannot know with complete certainty that the DSH did not begin before the age of 11, when the peer difficulties were measured. In the mediation analysis, the significant variables from the logistic regression were included as control variables. A bootstrap approach was applied to create confidence intervals (67).
