Logistic Regression - When would you use a logistic regression instead of linear regression?


When the outcome variable is continuous (like days in the hospital or FEV1), linear regression is used. When the outcome variable is categorical (like mortality), logistic regression is used. You can use continuous, categorical, or mixed-type variables as independent ones.
