Re: st: RE: nonsense category in ordered logit |

Good morning,

Nope, I'm happy to let the constant / thresholds determine the proportion in each of those two categories.I don't know that I understand your question. Suppose we get rid of all the other outcomes and just concentrate on the outcomes 2 and 3. Now we have a binomial. Are you asking whether the covariates are all equal to zero, or do you want further that the probability of each is one-half?

So, if I just run an ordinary logit on that distinction (2 v. 3) and do a likelihood ratio test for the betas, I'd have demonstrated what I hope to show? I find it intuitive, but there's often something technically wrong with my intuition.

thanks,

Michael
