Line for server Thank you in advance.I have a very basic statistics question. I have just started using stata,so thank you for your help.My question concerns the definition of bivariate versus univariate.When is one analysis considered bivariate, and when is another consideredunivariate?I have seen univariate describe tests involving 1 predictor and 1 outputvariable, but aI have also seen them described as basically descriptivestatistics.I have seen bivaraite used to describe Chi2 tests.So what would I call logistic regression analysis involving only onepredictor variable, e.g. high mpg (see example below)? Univariate, orbivariate analysis?What would I call Chi2 test? Univariate, or bivariate analysis? Thank you! ***BEGIN EXAMPLE sysuse auto generate highmpg=1 if mpg>=20 replace highmpg=0 if mpg _________________________________________________________________ Twice the fun—Share photos while you chat with Windows Live Messenger. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowslive/products/messenger.aspx * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
