  • 10. A COMPOSITE LOGISTIC REGRESSION APPROACH FOR ORDINAL PANEL DATA REGRESSION

    » Abstract We propose in this article a Composite Logistic Regression (CLR) approach for ordinal panel data regression. The new method transforms the original ordinal regression problem into a number of binary ones. Thereafter, the method of conditional logistic regression (Chamberlain, 1984; Wooldridge, 2001; Hsiao, 2003) can be directly applied. As a result, the new method allows the unobserved su...Continue Reading »
