    Abstract: This research was carried out among student in Nigerian schools. The logistic regression model and ordinal logistic model were fitted with Awareness to environmental issues (AEI) with two levels and Responsiveness to environmental issues (REI) with five levels as the response variable. The predictor variables are age, geographical zones, type of sc... Show More
