This study aims at comparing the performance of logistic Liu estimators with Maximum Likelihood (ML), Stien and ridge regression estimators using a Monte Carlo simulation, where the mean squared/absolute errors, MSE(&beta)/MAE(&beta) mean squared/absolute error between the actual probability π(x) and the estimated probability π ̂(x), MSE(π(x))/MAE(π(x)) are used as performance criteria. An algorithm for simulation steps is included. An application of the effect of quantities of household wastes and its components on the probability of getting a running waste recycling factory is analyzed. Results from both the simulation and the application show that logistic Liu estimators are mostly preferred for correcting mutilcollinearity in logistic regression.
