Group Exercise: Logistic Regression

Select a binary dependent variable that you want to explain. Select five or more independent variables. You may need to recode variables before you can include them in your model.

If you use USCounties, you can use the R scripts I've prepared to create binary vectors for EconType04 and Region. Use the source("...") function:

http://www.courseserve.info/files/SOCY7112regions.r -- for Region

Perform the hypothesis test and interpret the results.
