If you are unsure, than go through the logic of testing: formulate the
null-hypothesis. 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.
