maybe a multinomial logit model is appropriate for your analysis (mlogit
command in stata), if your three dependent variables are somehow similar to
e.g. marital status (married, divorced, never married, widowed). If your
three dep. vars are unrelated, or an observation has a one one two of the
three mlogit is not appropriate. In this case you need to run three single
models or you need to combine the three dependent variables to one
meaningful outcome variable.
