This seems to be a hetroscedastic model, have a look at chapter 10 of (McCullagh & Nelder 1989). A similar model that deals with discrete or ordinal data is sometimes called a hetregeneous choice models, this is discussed here: http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/oglm/index.html P. McCullagh, John A. Nelder (1989), "Generalized Linear Models", Second Edition, Chapman & Hall/CRC. Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
