Consider the following dataset: (20,525) (17,57) (10,19) (9,18) (7,14) (16,41) (3,5) (5,10) (10,23) (12,24) (9,15) (20,571) (18,102) (16,56). Calculate a best fit equation using the Least Squares Method. Now, add 20 to each y-value of the dataset. Explain what happens to the Least Squares equation in this case. Contrast this with what happens when you multiply each x-value by 2 and then recalcuate the Least Squares equation.

Logistic Regression vs. Sequential Least Squares Regression

In considering doing a logistic regression using the Enter method, it was suggested that I may want to consider doing a sequential LSR or stepwise logistic regression instead.

What exactly are the advantages and disadvantages of each of these options, and what criteria should I use in order to decide which method is best?

What are the conditions under which logistic regression is more preferable compared to ordinary least squares regression? Is there a logistic regression equivalent to the R square statistic?
