Logistic regression or similar?


I would like to perform a regression analysis on a dependent variable that is nominal (yes, no) on independent variables that are numerical, age, income, weight etc.

Is there a logistic regression node or identical node to do analysis on nominal dependent variables? Can someone please help? A sample workflow on the sample data-set would be fantastic!

Thanks for all your help!

Dear Nijojo,

We are currently working on a Logistic Regression node in KNIME (two nodes actually: a learner and a predictor). This node will be part of the next minor realease, v2.2 (minor releases usually come out around November each year).

For now you have to use the R integration to do a logistic regression. There are also (at least) two nodes for logistic regression in the WEKA extension. You could give those a try?

Hope that helps,
