However, I haven't been able to interpret the simple command LogitModelFit. THe problem is that the documentation only offers examples with two independent variables. I have not managed to find how can n more independent variables can be inserted so that the command works. Can somebody send me a simple and clear example?

Hi Francisco,

The data argument is like for other fitting functions. The independent
(predictor) variables are the first n-1 elements in each data point and
the last element in the data point is a dependent (response) variable.

Here is a list of 5 data points each having two predictors and one response.

In:= data = {{10, 4, 0.26}, {8, 3, 0.04}, {2, 0, 0.17}, {4, 8, 0.09},
{9, 4, 0.83}};

This treats the predictors as x and y in the fitting

In:= lm = LogitModelFit[data, {x, y}, {x, y}];

and here we get the fitted function and a table of parameter information
for the fitting.

In:= lm[{"BestFit", "ParameterTable"}]

I hope this helps.
