Hi. I'm using CDHS 2014 data for logistic regression analyses for unintended pregnancies in 15-19 and 20-24 years old urban, sexually active women. Do I need to keep the reference group as 25-49 year old women in the model? As there are only 108 15-19 year old adolescent girls who are urban and sexually active. Please advise.
Thanks, Farwa

A response from Dr. Tom Pullum:

I agree that the best choice of reference group would be the women age 25-49.
