I use the logit-estimator (logistic regeression). Alle my variables (dependent & independent) are dichotomous. Shazam calculates the marginal probabilities of the variables. The notion "typical case" is important when the marginal probabilities are calculated. According to the Shazam manual - see last version, p. 313:
"An approach is to set values to represent a "typical" case. A "typical case" can be defined by setting all dummy variables to their modal values and all other variables to their mean values".
Question: What is meant by "modal value"? Is it the most frequent value of the random dummy variable?PanteraFri, 06 Jan 2012 06:28:58 +0000http://community.econometrics.com/question/227/How to report logit output to more than 10 decimal place precision?http://community.econometrics.com/question/197/how-to-report-logit-output-to-more-than-10-decimal-place-precision/**A SHAZAM User asked:**
Do you know how to report logit output to more than 10 decimal place precision?
I tried to fit logit with "Format" specified more than ten decimal place reporting. But the error message is:
*"error, less data found than expected, zero used ."*
My program is attached herein.
par 1000

read(1) Y X0 X / Format
logit Y X / COEF=beta Stderr=alpha
gen1 B0=Beta(1)
gen1 B1=Beta(2)
format(127X,A8,F8.8)
print B0 B1 alpha / Format
