Re: st: SUR and a system of logit models |

You are correct. Estimating these equations as a system will only gain efficiency. Because the logit is in the linear exponential family as long as the conditional mean function is modeled correctly you will have consistent parameter estimates.

Dear all,

Thanks for your reply.

I actually have more than 2 equations that I am currently running

logistic regressions separately.

My understanding is that estimating them together would increase the

efficiency of the estimates. But is there anything strongly against

doing this instead of estimating a system of equations?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Faye

If there is no STATA procedue, is there SAS procedure?

One possible approach is alternating logistic regression:

V. Carey, S. L. Zeger, and P. Diggle. Modelling multivariate binary data

with alternating logistic regressions. Biometrika, 80(3):517–526, 1993.

I am not aware of a Stata implementation.
