Additionally, does the statistical significance of cut points in ordered logit matter? I found there are no z or P>|z| for cut points, though I could get it. ---------------------------------------- > Date: Mon, 17 May 2010 17:40:40 +0530 > Subject: Re: st: statistical significance of cut points in ordered logit > From: tirthankar.chakravarty@gmail.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > Grace, > > That is not how it works.
