Hi Nick,

Because STATA would create equal intervals between the 3 categories of BMI?? Would mlogit be a better choice then?

Yes, but that strikes me as just throwing away information.

I would like to know if BMI categorised into normal, overweight and obese could be considered as ordinal data and if so if be used as the outcome in 'ordinal logistic regression' with categorical exposures?
