# Logistic Regression Values

Important Note: This week contains a graded Discussion and an ungraded Collaboration Lab.

This weekâ€™s readings discuss conditional probabilities, conditional odds, logits, odds ratios, relative risk, and slopes. These can all be confusing terms but the good news is that all these values have some relationship to each other. Researchers have their own opinions on which values makes the most sense to report.

#### Post

In a 3-paragraph post, construct a persuasive argument for the value (conditional probability, odds, odds ratio, etc.) that, intuitively, makes the most sense for you to report as a result to your audience. Be sure to provide a specific rationale for your choice.
