Abstract

Linear models have been proved to be inappropriate for the analysis of a dichotomous variable. There are three main problems associated with the estimation of linear probability model: heteroscedasticity, non-normal errors, and predictions outside the unit interval. Thus alternative non-linear probabilistic models have been proposed in order to incorporate these difficulties. The most commonly used are the probit and logit models.
