Hello everybody,

The FEM includes a chapter about Logistic regression and I accepted to be the editor for this chapter. It is the only chapter approaching multivariate analysis using regression models. It is OK for me and I think it will be very useful for many people. However, For future editions of the FEM would be better to have a different approach. Logistic regression should be part of a broader chapter or "hyperchapter" dealing with multivariate analysis in general and including at least the main regression models used in epidemiology depending on the question to be answerd, the characteristics of our data and the study design (logistic, conditional logistic, cox and poisson regression models).

May be the ECDC could bring this issue up in a near future.
