Thanks so much!!! I'll try and see how it goes, possibly contact you later about developmens/ more questions. It would be great if I can compare coefficients both across the MLOGIT categories (Wald test does this for the whole coefficient vector, but I am really interested on the effect of "education" on each category) AND across the years. Good luck with the handout; hope to be hearing more from you over the next stages.... -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu]On Behalf Of Richard Williams Sent: Friday, March 05, 2004 2:37 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: RE: st: Test of coefficient equality At 01:58 PM 3/5/2004 +0100, Dimova, Ralitza wrote: >Thanks for the quick response.

Multinomial logit models always make my head hurt because of all the equations and coefficients floating around! To see how to approach such a problem when regular OLS regression is appropriate, you can see my handout at http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/xsoc593/lectures/l11b.pdf UCLA has a similar (possibly better) handout at http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/faq/compreg3.htm The sequence of models I would estimate would be something like 1. Totally constrained, i.e. no differences across years. Y is IV, X is DV 2. Model 1 + dummy variables for year. Allows intercept to differ across years but not slopes 3. Model 2 + interaction terms. Allows both intercepts and slopes to differ across years. I'll think about how exactly to adapt this to the mlogit case (I need to do this for an upcoming handout anyway!) and write back, if somebody doesn't beat me to it. (You could probably do it the exact same way as in these handouts, substituting -mlogit- for -regress-; but the -test- command is not the optimal way to do things for stuff like logistic regression.) ------------------------------------------- Richard Williams, Notre Dame Dept of Sociology OFFICE: (574)631-6668, (574)631-6463 FAX: (574)288-4373 HOME: (574)289-5227 EMAIL: Richard.A.Williams.5@ND.Edu WWW (personal): http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam WWW (department): http://www.nd.edu/~soc * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
