Hello all,

I'm trying to assess interhospital variations in hospital admission (binary variable). We suspect a cluster effect so I was a mixed logistic model with hospital center as random intercepts. Using a solution statement  I was able to obain coefficient estimate for each center but I'm not sure how to interpret these. 

In a mixed linear model these would be the difference with  he mean 'hospital'  fixed intercept I think, but not sure for logisitc equivalent.



The interpretation is the same as for the linear mixed model. The SOLUTION option on the RANDOM statement gives you the random deviations for each level of the SUBJECT= effect from the overall model intercept.


Posting code in the future will help you get a quicker answer 🙂
