Question

Which of these variables are nominal variables?

Age

Gender

Reported calcium level (mmol/L) for each patient

Reported phosphorus level (mmol/L) for each patient

Reported alkaline phosphatase level (IU/L) for each patient

Six laboratories (coded as 1 to 6 in the dataset).

Five age groups (65-69, 70- 74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89)

Answer #1

Variables which are qualitative or categorical are called
**nominal variable .**

We cannot not use nominal data for mathematical calculations.

In the given question gender and six laboratories (codes as 1 to 6 in the dataset ) are nominal variables .

Because variable gender is classified in three categories. Also laboratories are labelled 1 to 6 . Numbers 1, 2 ,3, 4, 5 ,6 are labels of six laboratories.

Remaining variables given in the question such as age , reported calcium level , phosphorus , alkaline phosphate levels and age groups are quantitative variables .

Clinical Scenario:
CHIEF COMPLAINT: Acute Altered Mental
Status
HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS: Mrs. X is a
56-year-old Caucasian female with medical history notable for
chronic pain and polypharmacy. Beginning three days ago she felt as
though she had a flu-like illness. The symptoms began with a cough

The file P17_05.xlsx contains data on 100 consumers who drink
beer. Some of them prefer light beer, and others prefer regular
beer. A major beer producer believes that the following variables
might be useful in discriminating between these two groups: gender,
marital status, annual income level, and age. b. Consider a new
customer: male, married, income $42,000, age 47. Use the logistic
regression equation to estimate the probability that this customer
prefers Regular. How would you classify this person?
