Complete the following steps to specify the columns of data that you want to analyze.

  1. In Response, enter the column that contains the binary response. Values may be numeric or text.
  2. In Response event, select which event the analysis will describe. By default, the second response level is selected as the response event. Changing the response event does not affect the model, but it can make the results more meaningful.
  3. In Continuous predictors, enter the continuous variables that may explain or predict changes in the response. Continuous predictors must use numeric values.
  4. In Categorical predictors, enter the categorical variables that may explain or predict changes in the response. Categorical predictors may use text or numeric values.
