Multicollinearity in logistic regression affects the variance of the maximum likelihood estimator negatively. In this study, Liu-type estimators are used to reduce the variance and overcome the multicollinearity by applying some existing ridge regression estimators to the case of logistic regression model. A Monte Carlo simulation is given to evaluate the performances of these estimators when the optimal shrinkage parameter is used in the Liu-type estimators, along with an application of real case data.
