Gotcha. That makes sense. I was trying to find another way to diagnose
which variables predict residual variance since using “sw, pe(.05) lr:
oglm y x1 x2 x3 x4 , eq2(x1 x2 x3 x4) flip” wont converge unless I
reduce the model and use fewer predictors.

The gologit2 results do indeed mirror the logit results. I was just
wondering if I could use gologit2 to see what variables would be

I am interested in testing an interaction between sex and income in
predicting success on a dichotomous variable. If i model using oglm
without the interaction and ", het(sex)" the lnsigma for sex is
significant. When I include the sexXincome interaction with ",
het(sex)" the lnsigma for sex is no longer significant (or even
close). I interpret this to mean the interaction has in effect dealt
with the hetero problem, correct?

But how can I tell if other predictors in the model that might also be

Thanks again--this is really helpful.
