# Re: st: logit or probit : why one row is missing S.E., z-score, and confidence interval??

```Greetings

I think the problem may be suggested by the message

> Note: 9 failures and 0 successes completely determined.

```
In such a case, I would try -exlogistic- command (for exact logistic regression) and see if that might provide more appropriate results.
```
I hope this helps,

```All my variables (dependent and independent) are binary. I ran a regression and I found there is no multicollinearity. Everything looked good.

But if I run a logit or probit then, as you can see below, some stats (standard error, z-score) do not show for one variable.

I wonder why??? Can someone help me, please?
