Classification table 89.17%
  1. dy/dx: Marginal effect. Includes the slope of the calculated parameter
  2. SD Standard deviation
  3. p-value: Corresponds to the test of individual significance of the corresponding parameter
  4. LR: Corresponds to the test of overall significance of all the slopes in the model
  5. *** Denotes significance at the level of p < 0.01; ** denotes significance at the level of p < 0.05; * denotes significance at the level of p < 0.10
