Thanks Nick, sorry for the lack of clarity, measure choice is my response (dependent is the term Im more farmiliar with) variable (s). I do have a set of predictor (independent) variables which I did not include in my email. Yes I did consider logit models for individual responses. I also considered constructing a dependent variable indicating whether or not any one of the choices was made. However, I have been thinking about the mlogit. So you say 8 possible choices, would that mean 1, 2, 3 for fert, man, fanyaju rspv and then 5/8 for the diffrent combinations of each. If so, doesnt isnt this a problem because the classes are not exactly independent in the sense that (say 5 if choices 2 and 3 were made on the plot) Ronnie Ronnie Babigumira Dept. of Economics and Resource Management Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) PO Box 5003, N-1432 Ås, Norway >>> n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk 04/21/05 4:30 PM >>> I am not clear whether you regard measure choice as a predictor or a response. And in any case I can imagine situations in which both views are reasonable. Soil erosion loss could depend on conservation measures, which choice of conservation measures might depend on many things. If it were the latter, I think it is up to you how you define a composite response. Nor is it clear to me that you need do that. If this were my problem I would look at (a) logit models for the individual responses and (b) a multinomial logit for the 8 possible choices of fert[iliser?] man[ure?] and fanyaju[???]. If conservation measures are predictors, you would need to look not just at dummies but also at interactions.
