I was just reading through the mlogit section of the reference manual.

On page 514-515 there is a section on setting up a classification table
following a mlogit run.

On page 515 there is a table showing the classification table that was
generated.

the commentary on this table states that "There are a substantial number of
misclassifications in both directions, though there are more correctly
classified observations than misclassified observations".

My reading of the table is that 134 out of 616 (21.8%) are correctly
classified.

Am I missing something here?

Kieran
