I tried to perform an > ordinal logistic regression but I am getting errors. Nick already explained that this is not an ordered logit problem. One way to get a handle on such problems is to compare actual odds or probabilities in 2011 with counterfactual odds or probabilities assuming the proportion of breasfeading remained constant at the 2009 level. See for example this talk by Roger Newson at the last London Stata Users' meeting: <http://stata.com/meeting/uk12/abstracts/materials/uk12_newson.pdf> Hope this helps, Maarten --------------------------------- Maarten L.
