Sorry -- I should have been more concise: Is there a way to force mlogit to use the omitted category from -char depvar[omit] # as the base outcome (reference group)? Or must I repeat this with the b(#) option in the mlogit command? The repetition is not difficult ... but I have a lot of regressions to run and therefore a lot of opportunities to make an error in defining the reference group. --- On Sat, 3/28/09, Joao Ricardo F.
