Sounds good to me, assuming you have enough data, except

that the interpretation rightfully is a little more involved. Something like, the same covariates affect the probability

of 2 and 3 similarly relative to a constant, although 2 is more(less) likely than 3; i.e. that constant *may* be different.

So the statement you make is relative to the covariates, and is thus

also quite dependent on the model you have used to introduce

these covariates.

m.p.

Good morning,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?

Nope, I'm happy to let the constant / thresholds determine the proportion in each of those two categories.

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
