I was trying to find an easy interpretation of the predicted probabilities of a logistic regression model, when one of my coworkers claimed that the logistic regression model is a likelihood.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Now, I know that maximum likelihood estimation is used to estimate the parameters, but I didn't think of the model as a likelihood.

The model is E(Y|X)_hat = exp(XBeta_hat)/(1+exp(XBeta_hat)).

Is the above function a likelihood function?
