Abstract : In many situations, we are interested in selection of important variables which are adequate for prediction under a logistic regression model. In this paper, some selection procedures based on the information theoretic criteria are proposed, and these procedures are proved to be strongly consistent. Keywords: Maximum likelihood estimation; Multivariate analysis; Asymptotic expansion.
