Simple logistic regression on qualitative dichotomic variables

In this post we will see briefly how to implement a logistic regression model if you have categorical variables, or qualitative, organized in double entry contingency tables. In this model the dependent variable (Y) and independent variable (X) are both dichotomies (or Bernoullian).In general, the probability that Y = 1 as a function of predictors is:$$P(Y=1|X=x)=\pi(x)=\frac{exp(\beta_0+\beta_1x_1+\cdots +\beta_kx_k)}{1+exp(\beta_0+\beta_1x_1+\cdots +\beta_kx_k)}$$Our goal...
