st: Why do logit model coefficients produce signs opposite to those obtained from OLS? |

Dear listers: I am running a very very simple binary model, y=a+bX+e, where y is a dummy variable. Before performing -logit- command, I estimate the above model by a traditional OLS, i.e. linear probability model (regress y x1 x2...) I knew that OLS is not a good model for fitting this model. I just want to get some direction from results obtained from traditional OLS However, after I perform -regress- and -logit-, I found signs of estimated coefficients from these two models are not the same. I am just wondering whether this is "normal"? or I am doing anything wrong? Many thanks.
