My Test:

I have "Load Failures (ex 46.2, 89.2, 10.2, 40) " as my dependent and I have material "thickness, porosity, stiffness value, density" as my independent variable. I want to model and see if I could design a material for a specific load failure based on my independent variables.

1. Can JMP 7 and 8 run "multivariate logistic regression" analysis?

2. How do I run this in JMP? Can someone please take me through the procedure. This is such a powerful software and has a lot of choices and variables that could dramatically change the results.

This is what I have tried so far and I am confused if what I ran might be multivariate logistic regression:

logistic regression : Fit Y by X on each independent parameter.

Fit Model : Fit Y with multiple X's...this is where I am confused.

Fit Y by X and Fit model if I choose my Y variable to be nominal instead of ordinal I get an error that tells me the program cannot converge "step halving limit" etc.

So I am forced to choose "ordinal" for logistic regression and I am not very familiar with the difference this will have on my results.

Also, when I add my independent variables I could: A. Just press add B. Cross or C. Nest.

This will also change my results dramatically.

If this is the correct way then how to I go about taking 3 or 4 independent parameters and testing them (together) against my load failure?

What is the proper procedure for running multivariate logistic regression using JMP. As I am a newbie to this software I would appreciate it if you could take me through it step by step.

Thanks very much,

Jerry

However, you have run into some sloppy semantics in the journals. In the statistician's lexicon, "multivariate" is used for multiple dependent variables whereas "multivariable" is used for a single dependent variable. Either can have multiple independent variables. What you describe in your first paragraph looks like multivariable logistic regression. JMP can certainly do that for a binary dependent variable. Check these notes for a further discussion
