The help-file of -brant- (part of the user written -Spost- package) states: "-brant- performs a Brant test of the parallel regression assumption (also called the proportional odds assumption) after ologit." This means that the null-hypothesis is that the parallel regression assumption holds. The p-value gives you the probability of finding a sample which deviates from this assumption as much or more if the null-hypothesis is true. If it is smaller than 5% (=.05) then we say that that is so unlikely that we probably haven't drawn a "weird" sample but that the null hypothesis is wrong. > So, I found a web page which says that it happened, you should use > the Generalized Ordered Logistic Model (gologit2 command).

These questions are answered in detail here: http://www.nd.edu/~rwilliam/gologit2/ Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
