Hi Austin and fellow statalisters, I am terribly sorry if I am reposting it again. I got a bounce back notice and hence I am trying to post it again. In reply to the issues you mentioned: I wonder if I could circumvent this problem you mentioned by considering the clogclog regression instaed of logit because then what I am modeling is the discrete hazard of dropping out in an interval conditional upon having survived till before that. So I could do the following clogclog school_left childage i.childfemale i.urban i.scstobc i.casteother i.dadp i.dadm i.momp i.momm wagep wage5 wage8 wage9 distp distm disth percapcons durat1 durat2 durat3 durat4 durat5 durat6 durat7 durat8 durat9 durat10 durat11, nocons nolog My goal is to find investigate the if the effect of mothers education(momp) on the probability of dropping out varies with duration. So if I find the predicted probability when momp=1 and durat1=1 and the predicted probability when momp=1 and durat2=1, then look at the estimated change in probability and see that the estimated change is significantly positive, then could I use this as evidence to say that in risk period 2, momp=1 matters more than in risk period1 in terms of interval hazard of dropping out?
