Dear Richard, thanks for you help!
Could you please advice if it is possible to use categorical
independent variables of 3 or more categories with gologit2 (e.g.: 3
levels of occupational statues), or is it only possible to use model
with binary or continuous predictors ?

Best wishes,

Gitit Kadar Satat

gologit2 does not support factor variables. But, you can go ahead and compute dummy variables yourself from a multi-category variable. gologit2 also suppports the -xi- prefix, although personally I would rather just compute the dummies myself. I've always thought xi output looked hideous.
