People can do more than one activity every day: first jogging, then go to work, then shopping, whatever. That is, there are five observation per ID individual. Actually, the ID is the (each person's) day. I wish to explore the individual characteristics determining the share of time spent for each activity. As the dependent variable is a share [0;1] I was thinking about fractional logit. In Stata it would be (I guess): glm y x, family(binomial) link(logit). However, I am not clear whether fractional logit can be applied on the original data, or the data have first to be transformed in some way. Moreover, in doing -glm- live above I implicitly assume that each observation is independent which is definitely not true. Does anybody know some solution?<< Yes, you are correct that there are notable dependencies among the variables caused by the sum constraint. Take a look at the book by John Aitchison, Compositional Data Analysis. The original edition is 1986 but it was republished in 2003 with some additions. Feel free to drop me a line, I'm interested in this problem.
