Hi

We're trying to develop a model to explain individuals' propensity to save using various economic, demographic and psychographic characteristics available in the HILDA survey (cross-sectional data on Australian households for 2001). We've grouped the responses to a question on how the individual perceives their own savings behaviour into whether the person doesn't save, saves irregularly or saves regularly. This acts as the dependent variable in an ordered probit model. Numerous explanatory variables are then tried on the right-hand side. However, we want to know whether the model is better at predicting certain types of saving behaviour (e.g. regular savers). To achieve this, we were hoping to construct a hit-and-miss table. Is there any way of generating in STATA 7 a classification (hit and miss) table following an ordered probit? In other words, is there an equivalent to the LSTAT function following OPROBIT?"

Much appreciated
tim
