st: [Why does Stata drop an additional category?] |

I am posting this for Yaojun. I have left off the SPSS output which is a Word file. Anyone want it, please contact Yajun (y.li.3@bham.ac.uk) or me, directly.

m.p.

Dear all,

I would like to ask you for advice. I am doing a logit on unemployment

and my independent variables are:

religion 1=Protestant; 2=Catholic; 3=None

cath 1=Catholic; 0=Other

educ5 1=Degree; 2=Prof below degree; 3=A Levels; 4=O Levels;

5=None

e5c -2=None; -1=O Level; 0=A Levels; 1=Prof below degree;

2=Degree

gen cath=religion==2 if religion<=3

char religion[omit] 1 /* Protestants =base*/

char educ5[omit] 5 /* None/Prim =base*/

I wish to use the main effects of religion and educ5, and the

interaction effects for cath*e5c.

The first four of the following commands all end in _Ieduc5_1 dropped

due to collinearity; the last gives the coefficient for this category

but the model statistics seems strange: no constant and no comparability

with the output in SPSS for the same data (the syntax and the results

are attached).

xi: logistic unemployed i.religion i.educ5 i.cath*e5c

xi: logistic unemployed i.religion i.educ5 i.cath*e5c,coef

xi: logit unemployed i.religion i.educ5 i.cath*e5c, or

xi: logit unemployed i.religion i.educ5 i.cath*e5c

xi: logit unemployed i.religion i.educ5 i.cath*e5c,nocons or

I would be most grateful if anyone could explain to me why in the first

four commands the first category of education (_Ieduc5_1) is dropped (I

used both Stata 7 and Stata 8); and how to obtain an output similar to

that in SPSS. The results for models 2-4 are not presented because they

are very similar to results from model 1.

Many thanks.

Yours sincerely

Yaojun Li
