Linear Probability, Logit, and Probit Models

Linear Probability, Logit, and Probit Models

November 1984 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

After showing why ordinary regression analysis is not appropriate in investigating dichotomous or otherwise "limited" dependent variables, this volume examines three techniques-linear probability, probit, and logit models-well-suited for such data. It reviews the linear probability model and discusses alternative specifications of nonlinear models.
