When interpreting the results of a regression model, the first step is to look at the regression coefficients. Each term in the model has one. And each one describes the average difference in the value of Y for a one-unit difference in the value of the predictor variable, X, that makes up that term. It’s the effect size statistic for that term in the model. [Read more…] about The Difference Between an Odds Ratio and a Predicted Odds
Even with a few years of experience, interpreting the coefficients of interactions in a regression table can take some time to figure out. Trying to explain these coefficients to a group of non-statistically inclined people is a daunting task.
For example, say you are going to speak to a group of dieticians. They are interested [Read more…] about Using Marginal Means to Explain an Interaction to a Non-Statistical Audience
