I´m doing logistic regression and one of the predictors is age. How can I check that age is logit-linear? (I´ve seen a lowess plot but I don´t know how it was done or if it was a good method.)


A good method for doing this is with a partial residual plot -- see the chapter in McCullagh and Nelder (1989) on diagnostics for details. Joseph Hilbe wrote a Stata command called -lpartr- to do this in the case of logistic regression (-findit lpartr-).
