You could perform this analytics approach in Microsoft Excel, but for nearly all applications, including conditional logistic regression, multiple logistic regression and multivariate logistic regression, using either open source (logistic regression R) or commercial (logistic regression SPSS) software packages is recommended to analyze data and apply techniques more efficiently. You can perform the analysis in Excel or use statistical software packages such as IBM SPSS® Statistics that greatly simplify the process of using logistic regression equations, logistic regression models and logistic regression formulas.
Comparison to linear regression
When to use linear or logistic analysis is a common query. Basically, linear regression analysis is more effectively applied when the dependent variable is open-ended or continuous — astronomical distances or temperatures, for example. Use the logistic approach when the dependent variable is limited to a range of values or categorical — A or B...or A, B, C or D.
