# Re: st: bivariate ordinal probit model

```I'm not sure that Stata has a bivariate ordinal probit model estimating
routine, per se.  But, depending upon what you're looking for, either -suest-
or -gllamm- might give you what you want.  I've tried below to illustrate some
possibilities for their use with an artificial multivariate ordinal probit
dataset with two predictors, one continuous and one categorical (factor).
