Dear users,
In my psychometric test i have applied logistic regression on my data. My data consists of 50 predictors (22 continuous and 28 categorical) plus a binary response.

Using glm(), stepAIC() i didn't get satisfactory result as misclassification rate is too high. I think categorical variables are responsible for this debacle. Some of them have more than 6 level (one has 10 level).

Please suggest some better regression model for this situation. If possible you can suggest some article.

thanking you.
