Could anyone recommend a source that discusses how to interpret these coefficients? I have read a few papers in the "economics of happiness" literature where they use these ordered logits and probits but they never discuss what the magnitudes of the coefficients mean; they care only about the coefficients' signs and statistical significance. Similarly, the standard Greene econometrics textbook has very little regarding this interpretation.Long and Freese's book is very good on this. See

Even if you don't get the book, download their -spost9- routines, which you can locate with -findit-.

If you want something quickly, the notes for my categorical data analysis class are online at
