Hi EverybodyI was hoping somebody could shed some light onthe differences between using an ordinal andnominal variable in multinomial logistic regression in Stata.I understand the processes are different, butI?m more concerned about the model fitting. Myinterpretation of Hosmer and Lemeshow (2000) wasthat there isn?t a reliable test to estimate model fit. Is this still correct?

Also, when using an ordinal variable as adependent variable in multinomial logistic, arethere any assumptions specific to this analysisthat need to be met or parameter estimates that may vary from binary logistic?

Another question ? Stata only seems to produce acoefficient or relative risk ratio formultinomial logistic. Is there a specificreason why it won?t produce an odds ratio or isit just not a function of Stata? I assumed itwas the former since Stata is so comprehensiveit probably wouldn?t leave something like that out.
