Missing constant in the independant variables for logistic regression

Missing constant in the independant variables for logistic regression

In the exercises for logistic regression, where multiple independent variables are taken into account, there is no const variable added. Does this have a reason? In the lessons (“Testing the model”) the instructor actually DOES add a const. Is that the correct way?

Hi Freek,
There is no particular reason. It would be more correct to add one.
Thanks for pointing this issue out!
Best,

Ah thank you, that clears it up for me then. Perhaps it’s best to amend the files for the logistic regressions to reflect that?
