Dear Statalist I am encountering running an ordered logit regression with the following panel data ranging from 1992-2010. describe p11101 regionunempl unempl_empl interaction storage display value variable name type format label variable label p11101 byte %8.0g life satisfaction -discrete from 0-10 regionunempl float %9.0g Region unempl. %unempl_empl float %9.0g dummy for being 1=unemployed and0=employedinteraction float %9.0g regionalunemploymentrate*unemployment dummyI am trying to identify the link between unemployment and happiness and in particular whether there exists a social norm effect. P11101 is thus my dependent variable and as it is discrete I was planning to run an ordered logit but I am encountering difficulties when trying to calculate the odds ratio. As can be seen the social norm effect, and thus whether you feel more comfortable when other people around you are not working, too is massively big (27). That looks kind of suspicious to me. Could you give me an advice on why this is the case and what I should do about it?
