my goal is it to estimate a Multi-level Model.
But at first I want to try a basline model: A logistic regression model. Besides the dependend categorical variable I also habe some categorical independent variables with more than two categories. But in the variable statement I`m not able to define those independent variables as categorical variables. The output always says, that only dependent variables can be categorical.
Now I don`t know how to understand the output. How do I have to interpret the findings, while the different categories of the independent (categorical) variables are not printed.
Do I have to add more variables (dummy variables) to the model? Or is it possible to define a reference categorie like it is in SPSS?
