In other words, it is used to facilitate the interaction of dependent variables (having multiple ordered levels) with one or more independent variables. It is used to describe data and to explain the relationship between one dependent nominal variable and one or more continuous-level (interval or ratio scale) independent variables. ## iter  10 value 179.982880 Multinomial logistic regression is used when the target variable is categorical with more than two levels. ## - gpa           1 730.67 This is what we are seeing in the above table.
