Logistic Regression (Overview)

"Logistic Regression (LR) is a statistical method that is useful for evaluating why adverse impact may be occurring in a hiring or promotional process. While classic 2 X2 table analysis can identify whether the observed hiring or promotion rates betweentwo groups are significantly different, LR can determine if job-relevant qualificationfactors (e.g., experience or education) of the individuals included in the analysisexplain the difference in hiring or promotion (as opposed to gender or race being thereason).

From a technical standpoint, LR analyses use multiple predictor variables forthe individuals included in the study (such as education, experience, or other relevantqualifications) to predict a single criterion or 'outcome' variable that has only twopossible values, such as hired/not hired or promoted/not promoted."
