Logistic regression is actually not regression but classification. The reason that it is lumped in with regression is that its functional form is very similar to linear regression. However, logistic regression does not output just any number like linear regression but a number between zero and one which, as you probably realize, is a probability. In other words, logistic regression can be used to predict how likely it is for an outcome to be realized (e.g., buy or not or whether you will pass this course).
