A Simple and Transparent Alternative to Logistic Regression
AbstractObservation oriented modeling was compared to logistic regression in the re-analysis of data from a published study. In the original study students’ decisions to stop or continue controversial animal research was predicted from gender, the type of research being conducted, and measures of ethical attitudes. With regard to classification accuracy, results from the observation oriented modeling analyses compared favorably to results obtained from logistic regression and two other methods of classification. Prediction profiles created from the observation oriented modeling analyses were moreover parsimonious and transparent, and the analyses themselves were free of assumptions. Unique features of the observation oriented modeling approach were discussed.
