Linear regression helps you find relationships between two or more variables, but when an outcome has only two possibilities, you need a different tool. That, my friends, is where logistic regression comes in.

This session will be most useful if: You took 'Stats: An introduction', or are comfortable with summary statistics and PSPP or SPSS. Familiarity with spreadsheets and database managers is recommended.
