Many thanks for all of you!  Actually, sex means whether or not
respondents is sexually active, as Maarten indicated.

I learn of  "gllamm", could you tell me more details about it? Are
there any references about it?

By the way, should I only use the parameter estimates rather than
standadized coefficients to explain the dummy variable in the path
analysis since its nature of category variables?

Many thanks  again!

I believe there are some animals that can change their gender, but
given the names of the other variables my guess is that Yan Cheng is
looking at whether or not someone is sexually active.
