Logistic regression model, Applied Statistics

A marketing research firm was engaged by an automobile manufacturer to conduct a pilot study to examine the feasibility of using logistic regression for ascertaining the likelihood that a family will purchase a new car during the next year. A random sample of 33 suburban families was selected. Data on annual family income (in thousand dollars, X1), the current age of the oldest family automobile (in years, X2) were obtained. A follow up interview conducted 12 months later was used to determine whether the family actually purchased a new car (Y = 1) or did not purchased a new car (Y = 0).

The data is stored in file new-car.sav. and attach.

A) Specify a logistic regression model for this study,
