Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Lets say I have the following attributes...

Body fat percentage, Body mass index

Outcome = obese (yes / no)

I have data for all attributes and outcomes. What I'd like to do is a joint probability. For example I'd like to know what the probability is of someone being obese given their BMI and body fat percentage.

I can calculate the correlation between the attributes and the outcomes. My intuition tells me that I need to combine the correlation in some way, but can't seem to find any information on this.

Can someone point me in the right direction?
