Here is another take. Consider adding the square of a 0-1 variable as an extra predictor to check linearity. But it's the same! Thus there is no progress this way.

Hi


Sorry for the vague explanations.

I want to check in how far being interested in a political scnadal and evaluating the scandal as an important problem, impacts the vote intentions of the people. My exampekl is the CDU- party finance scandal in Germany in 1999/2000.

My dependent variable is vote intention

1 = vote intention for CDU/CSU 0 = vote intention for other parties

Independent Variables:

subject orientation: 1 = interested in scandal 0 = not interested
problem orientation: 1 = scandal importatnt problem 0 = scandal not important


My logistic regression: logit voteUnion subject problem

My "not working" I mean that the Box-Tidwell test does not give any results. Normally below the regression, there would be columns with the results, yet in my case nothing


Iteration 0:  Deviance =  46385.51
Iteration 1:  Deviance =  46385.51 (change =         0)

[Total iterations: 0]

Box-Tidwell regression model

Logistic regression Number of obs = 36278 LR chi2(2) = 228.82 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 Log likelihood = -23192.755 Pseudo R2 = 0.0049

Deviance:46385.509.

.
Here are the results.

Thanks again for your reply.
