The purpose of this thesis is to do an in-depth review of logistic regression and its application. Additionally, comparison of four diﬀerent methods of coeﬃcient standardization was done using Heart Disease Dataset. These methods were compared based on testing accuracy, training accuracy, area under the curve, sensitivity, and speciﬁcity. Furthermore, logistic regression analysis was applied to National Longitudinal Study of Adolescence Health Survey (Add health) dataset to examine the relationship between anxiety or panic disorder and history of childhood maltreatment, medical conditions such as ADHD, PTSD, some socio-economic conditions and addiction. Results indicated; history of abuse has a signiﬁcant eﬀect on anxiety disorder. The number of abuses experienced also has a signiﬁcant association with developing anxiety disorder later in life. Women had higher odds of having such a disorder if they faced maltreatment in their childhood. Moreover, having PTSD and Depression also increased the odds of anxiety substantially.
