Parameters | Predictive Modeling | PROC LOGISTIC MODELING Options

The MODEL statement names the response variable and the explanatory effects, including covariates, main effects, interactions, and nested effects.

• Option is the PROC LOGISTIC Model Statement option.

• Enclose the options within parentheses, for example (EVENT="cancer"), where "cancer" is one of the levels of the dependent class variable.

Specifies the event category for the binary response model. PROC LOGISTIC models the probability of the event category. The EVENT= option has no effect when there are more than two response categories. You can specify the value (formatted if a format is applied) of the event category in quotation marks. By default, INCLUDE=0. By default, MAXITER=25. If convergence is not attained in the number of iterations, the displayed output and all output data sets created by the procedure contain results that are based on the last maximum likelihood iteration.

Type specific PROC LOGISTIC Modeling options in the PROC LOGISTIC Modeling Options field.

For example, to specify cancer as the event category, type (EVENT=”cancer”) in the text box.Refer to the SAS PROC LOGISTIC MODEL Statement documentation for more information.
