Dear listservers, I am unable to reproduce the coefficients that I obtain from mlogit when I attempt to run the same model in gologit2. As a simplified example of the problem, my dependent variable (Y) has 3 categories (0,1,2) and I have a single binary independent variable X (0,1). Mlogit gave me the same result I obtained when I ran separate logistic regressions comparing Y=1 and Y=2 separately with Y=0, but gologit2 did not. My results are below. At first I thought that gologit2 might be giving the inverse of mlogit but that is not the case. I like the flexibility of gologit2 but am not sure how to interpret it's results.
