# st: Re: logistic reg version 8 & 11

```Here is an example using the auto data:

. sysuse auto, clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. version 8

. xi:logistic  foreign i.rep78
i.rep78           _Irep78_1-5         (naturally coded; _Irep78_1 omitted)

note: _Irep78_2 != 0 predicts failure perfectly
_Irep78_2 dropped and 8 obs not used

Logistic regression                               Number of obs   =         61
LR chi2(3)      =      23.66
Prob > chi2     =     0.0000
Log likelihood = -27.444671                       Pseudo R2       =     0.3012
