Subject:  Understanding logistic output  OR of 9564 
ContentType:  text/plain; charset=USASCII 
Dear list,
I got the following output from a multiple logistic regression (SPSS11.0)and I am not sure how to explain the results. Two variables were entered (stepwise) into the equation, yet one of the variables has a significance level of .711 with an Exp(B) of 9564 and a 95% CI of .00 to 1.02E+25. In addition, there is a variable which is not included but which has a significance of .004 (it is included in the list of variables not in the equation). Could multicollinearity explain why this is happening. TIA
