Hi
I am trying to predict a binary outcome from a set of correlated
variables.  Rather than using logisitic regression to include the
variables one-by-one in the model, I was wondering if there was a way
in Stata of generating sets or functions of the variables?  Maybe
something similar to PCA, except that you would be trying to explain
the variation in the binary outcome rather than the whole dataset.
I hope that this makes some sort of sense!
Thankyou
Karin
