The deviance (based on the likelihood ratio statistic) or the Pearson chi-square can be used as a goodness-of-fit statistic if, at each observed covariate pattern, the data can be grouped. That is, if there are ni subjects with the same covariate values (and hence the same Bernoulli distribution), they can be treated as a binomial sample and a test of goodness-of-fit can be based on the comparison of the observed and expected (or predicted) counts in each covariate pattern. Alternatively, if the covariates are quantitative rather than categorical, Hosmer and Lemeshow [10] proposed a goodness-of-fit statistic similar to the Pearson chi-square, which can be calculated after grouping individuals on the basis of having similar values of the predicted probability pi .

Because the total number of subjects nj++ can vary across partial tables, the Cochran–Mantel–Haenszel test can accommodate an arbitrary number of controls for each case. 6, also accommodates matched designs other than matched pairs and offers many of the advantages of logistic regression to matched studies. 9. For this example, n10 is the number of pairs for which the case with earlier onset schizophrenia experienced birth complications but the control did not and equals 9, and n01 is the number of pairs for which the control experienced birth complications but the case with earlier onset schizophrenia did not and equals 4.

However, note from the 95% confidence interval that our data are consistent with odds of recovery up to 22% higher for patients with Axis I comorbidity. 16. Using either test we conclude there is no association between Axis I comorbidity and 2-year functional recovery after adjusting for sex and age. We can also use the results from the multiple logistic regression to obtain estimates and test statistics for the other covariates in the model. 99). 69). 004); for every decade age increase, we estimate that the odds of recovery is 36% higher.
