Following on from this, I was wondering how you would interpret the
coefficient on age-squared in Logistic regression. Also does including
age-squared mean that the interpretation of crude age variable is no more
relevant (or have I misunderstood Issac's point here)?

I think you will not have problem to but a transformation in a MLR, but the
implications could be in the interpretation.  You couldn't talk about the
age, you have to talk about the age*age in all the estimation or odds.

Dear STATA users,
Assuming I have age and gender, then I transform age to age*age to
normalise it. From here, I want logistic regression model to predit an
outcome- lets say mortality. Will I be wrong to use age, age*age and
gender all at the same time in the model? If so, what are the
e.g logistic outcome age age*age gender; In otherwords is acceptable to
use a variable and its transform in MLR (step wise)?
Can soemone help please
