Hi all,
Do you know if it is valid to compare between and probit and logit
model, by comparing the corresponding AICs?
Is AIC valid to compare models with different distributions? or does
is it only valid to compare models with the same distribution, for
example two logit models with different explanatory variables?
Thank you very much!
LM
