In a paper that appeared four years later, Halperin et al. [1971] reexamined the Framingham data analysis by Truett et al. [1967] using a logistic model. Halperin et al. analyzed several subsets of the data; for this problem we abstract the data for men aged 29 to 39 years, and three variables: cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, and cigarette smoking (0 = never smoked; 1 = smoker); cholesterol and systolic blood pressure are measured. The following coefficients
for the logistic and discriminant models (with standard errors in parentheses) were
obtained:
