From: Longer postpartum hospitalization options – who stays, who leaves, what changes?

Final Logistic Regression Model Statistics: Rho-square = 0.25 (a pseudo R2, values between 0.2 and 0.4 suggest a very good fit)
Hosmer and Lemeshow Goodness-of-fit test = 0.98 (values greater than 0.25 indicate good fit) 74.3% correctly classified
  
  1. a Eighteen of the 1230 (1.5%) mothers had missing values for one or more of the variables included in the final model.
  2. b Odds ratios for categorical variables represent comparisons with the referent group (OR = 1.00) after adjustment for all other variables in the model.
