Dear Statalisters,

I have a question regarding the gologit2 estimation procedure: How can I interpret the _cons that is displayed with the output? If my equation does contain a constant, can this be identified seperately?

Thank you very much for your advice!

gologit2 is like running a series of logistic regressions. So, if Y has 4 categories, in the first panel you get category 1 versus categories 2, 3, 4. Then, you get 1, 2 versus 3, 4. Then, 1, 2, 3 versus 4. So, you interpret the constant the same way you would interpret the constant in logistic regressions. gologit2 does not support a noconstant option. For more, see
