Dear all,I have a general question regarding large coefficients in logisticregression. Is it possible that the estimated coefficients for aspecific variable in logistic regression is highly dependent on thedimension of this variable. So, in my case the independent variableranges from -0.0009 and 0.1197 which results in a coefficient fromlogistic regression that is 48.5. To my knowledge, such largecoefficients are uncommon for logistic regression. So, do you thinkthis is just due to these very small values for my dependentvariable and thus not a problem for my results? Thanks
