Hello all,

I would to ask you a technical question on the transformation of logit
coefficients into non-negative weights.

For example, I have run a logit regression which gave the following results:

logodds= 0.2198*agrhh +0.7161*ea_trad_boma - 0.0673*ruralnorth
+ 0.1807*ruralcentre - 0.4402*ruralsouth;

odds= p/(1-p) is the odd ratio
p is the probability of being poor
the explanatory variables are all categorical and take the value of 0 or 1.

Now, I want to transform all of the coefficients into non-negative integers (based on a
linear relationship as above) so that the prediction of the logodds ranges from 0 to 100.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Thank you

NH
