Interaction effect analysis in multiple logistic regression


Research content:
Data on hand-washing patterns in four different stages of COVID-19 were collected, and multiple logistic regression was used to study the effects of gender and stage of COVID-19 on hand-washing patterns.
Dependent variable: hand washing method
Independent variable 1: Gender identity;
Independent variable 2: Outbreak, Vaccines, Variants and Post have been set as dummy variables, with Outbreak as the reference.

The main research question was the effect of gender on hand washing patterns, and that's done.

Question: Further analysis of the interaction effects of gender and the stage of epidemic development on hand-washing patterns (i.e., whether hand-washing patterns between men and women at different stages constitute significant differences). Is it possible to use multiple logistic regression for interaction effect analysis? If so, how to select factors (including dummy variables) for interaction effect analysis operations?

The forced fusion of medium and being is a technological ideal that is difficult to explain. But in addition, behind this ideal, there is also a social ideal, that is, media extendivism wants to maximize individual freedom through the meta-universe. The logical basis of this maximization is that since the meta-cosmic level of media is everywhere, then everyone is in the "private" "definition" and use of the media, they can freely enter the virtual space, freely choose relations and identities; Moreover, because of the fusion of the virtual and the real, the virtual freedom acquires the real meaning. However, in the "freedom" brought about by the infinite extension of media, the definer of media seems not so simple. Of course, since everything is a medium, all people involved in relationships are definers in this sense. However, even the media extensionists cannot refute the fact that meta-cosmic media necessarily rely on vast algorithms and their material carriers (i.e., the platforms, facilities and protocols mentioned above), and thus cannot be separated from institutional entities, producers and managers, as well as the administrators and legislators who govern at the highest level of the community and represent the community as a whole. These people's definitions have real authority; The users define only the information and scene content, and they themselves are only the definition objects of the media authority. Thus, since not everyone is a definer, there is no possibility that users and mediators can define together. In addition, the definition of managers and managers is not entirely transparent to users, or even necessary; Users are often passive, just as we are suddenly forced to face the "meta-universe" propagated by some institution. However, in the ideal of infinite media extension and infinite human freedom, institutions, institutions, societies, and realities seem to perish in the future vision; The individual is the new intermediary "alien," and society is subject to the new relationships of these individuals.

If the boundary between the virtual and the real, between the individual and society (represented by those in power), is smoothed out in such a vision, and some kind of universal world is constructed, then a new boundary of reason seems to emerge. The underlying "meta-problem" with three links is: how to imagine a world that is both "virtual" and "real" at time t, whose essence is defined by both "private" and "public", which is both "free" and "not free"?
