Considering the inclusion of an interaction term, such as race in our -union- dataset, naturally follows such estimation, since we're in the business of comparing logit coefficients across groups. I have to say this is an absolute minefield. Thanks for your helpful comments with regards my other follow-up query.
Allison's paper does an excellent job of explaining why comparing logit & probit coefficients across groups leads you into a potential minefield. My paper explains why Allison's proposed solution may just be leading you into a different minefield. :) I propose some enhancements of Allison's method, but the biggest thing may be just to realize that there can be minefields whichever way you go.
