So how i can interpret this ? Should i said > that the first variable really have a significant > effect on the dependent variable? Why do you expect the models to be the same? Would you expect fitting a linear probability model with -reg- and then by -glm- to be the same? No, because they are _two different routines_, and so are these two. The latter model gives a better fit to the data than the former. If the assumptions underpinning -oglm- have not undermined in the process, that should be a cause for celebration. You have to take the statistical output of each model on their merits. The interpretation of the parameters on the variables should not change. But, as always, I stand to be corrected. > Secondly, could you explain me more why you said > -oglm- is useful eventhough -oglm- does not fix the > problem. It is useful because, as I tried to show you, you get an idea of how inappropriate the use of an interaction term (or terms) is for your logit model, if at all. If Allison's delta is very small, then one may conclude that you could compare your logit coefficient(s) across your groups of interest legitimately. If Allison's delta is high, however, you have a problem, as well as a decision to make: do you press on regardless, or do you bite the bullet and forego the interaction terms? One point I failed to emphasise last time out was that by multiplying delta by 100, you obtain the percentage difference in the disturbance variance across groups. It is also worth saying that Allison's delta is not the only method that estimates this. If you dig around Richard Williams' class papers at http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/, then you should find a paper in which he discusses, compares and critiques all of these methods, including Allison's. -- Clive Nicholas [Please DO NOT mail me personally here, but at <clivenicholas@hotmail.com>.
