I am running two ordered logits equations. One for immigrants andone for the native-born. Each has the exact same independent anddependent variables. There are 3 categories for the depedentvariable. I find that the threshhold parameters are quite differentfor these two groups. Specifically, both cutpoints are much lowerfor immigrants. Can anyone enlighten me as to how I should interpretthis? To me this means, all else equal, immigrants are much morelikely to be in the highest category and much less likely to be inthe lowest category. Can I just interpret this in a similar manor asif these two groups had different intercepts in a linear regression?Also, is it appropriate to compare marginal effects betweenimmigrants and the native-born.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
