Hello everyone

I appologize for my lack of experience in statistical methods. I am an R user begginer and I am running a logit model using "zelig" and "pcse" packages. I will go to the point and is that Im having problems with interpreting the results of my models.. It is really simple (I guess for the most advanced scholars) however I really dont understand how to interpret the coefficients.

here is my output

Call:
zelig(formula = newtrst ~ stfdem + stfgov + clsprty, model = "logit",

    data = spadat)

Deviance Residuals:

   Min 1Q Median 3Q Max -2.784 0.318 0.410 0.540 1.460

Coefficients:

            Estimate Std. Error z value Pr(>|z|)    

(Intercept) -0.6434 0.2427 -2.65 0.008 **
stfdem 0.2447 0.0441 5.55 2.8e-08 *** stfgov 0.2050 0.0468 4.38 1.2e-05 *** clsprty 0.4173 0.1649 2.53 0.011 *

(Dispersion parameter for binomial family taken to be 1)
Null deviance: 1112.46 on 1427 degrees of freedom Residual deviance: 996.02 on 1424 degrees of freedom AIC: 1004 Number of Fisher Scoring iterations: 5 Thanks Vioelta -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/logit-model-interpretation-tf3873849.html#a10976317 Sent from the R help mailing list archive at Nabble.com. ______________________________________________ R-help_at_stat.math.ethz.ch mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help PLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
