Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2012-10-16


A statistical analysis that estimates the probability of an event occurring as a function of other factors. Multinomial regression may be used on an outcome with more than two levels or categories (Chan, 2005). This statistical analysis is constrained by the ability to identify an "association" between the explanatory and the outcome variables that is not necessarily a causal relationship.
