This distinction rarely matters. Look at the marginal effects after estimation, they will probably be similar.

Dear Statalist,

I have a binary dependent variable and would like to run Probit. But how
to formally test if my estimation model is Probit or Logit? Does Stata
has some command to test the distribution is normal or logistic? Thanks.


Thanks.
