It sounds from this that your rich and poor variables are percentiles of income. That being so, a -logit- model seems quite inappropriate to me. You should be better off using a quantile approach consistently. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk muhammed abdul khalid the reason of choosing logit is because there is negative corr for wealth and earnings for the poor (p.20) and rich (p95). Thus, logit for regression for poor and rich, and qreq for median group. which means i have 3 regressions: logit rich lgearnings i.ethnic i.strata i.occupation i.edu age logit poor lgearnings i.ethnic i.strata i.occupation i.edu age qreg lgwealth lgEarningsPc i.ethnic i.strata i.occupation i.edu age , quantile(.5) This is not correct model? As for effect of inheritance, it is not possible to look at the change in wealth as my data is only for year 2007; comparison is not possible. 2010/4/7 Maarten buis <maartenbuis@yahoo.co.uk>: > --- muhammed abdul khalid wrote: >> I have a question regarding my logit regression: >> logit wealth lgearnings i.ethnic i.strata i.occupation i.edu age > > -logit- is for binary data, while a variable like wealth is typically > not binary.
