Introduction This site provides illustrative experience in the use of Excel for data summary, presentation, and for other basic statistical analysis. I believe the popular use of Excel is on the areas where Excel really can excel.
We now address the case of multinomial logistic regression where the outcomes for the dependent variable can be ordered. Suppose the possible outcomes for the dependent variable are 1, …, r. Thus The likelihood and log-likelihood statistics are as follows: Create an ordered logistic regression for this study based on the data in Figure 1.
Figure 1 — Data for Example 1 We now present different approaches for creating the ordinal logistic regression models, especially for finding the coefficients. We also compare the results obtained with those obtained using a multinomial logistics regression model.
Using binary logistic regression models We begin by developing three cumulative binary regression models as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2 — Cumulative binary logistic regression models We now find the coefficients for each of these models using the Logistic Regression data analysis tool or the LogitCoeff function. We now build the ordinal logistic regression model as shown in Figure 3 and 4 Figure 3 — Ordinal logistic regression model part 1 Figure 4 — Ordinal logistic regression model part 2 Representative formulas used in Figures 3 and 4 are shown in Figure 5.
Figure 5 — Representative formulas from Figure 3 and 4 Note: Using Solver As we did for multinomial logistic regression models we can improve on the model we created above by using Solver.
As before, our objective is to find the coefficients i. AI7 in Figure 4 that maximize LL i.
The result is shown in Figure 6. Figure 6 — Revised ordinal logistic regression model We see that the new value of LL is We therefore choose to initialize the coefficients with the values from the three binary models.
Figure 7 — Forecasting using the model Here the values in range C AI7 where the coefficients in range AG5: AI7 are shown in Figure 6. The results show that the probability that a year-old woman will be very unsatisfied is These values agree with the data shown in range V Y11 of Figure 6.
We can also use the OLogitPredC function for forecasts corresponding to data not in our sample.
AI7 to obtain the results shown in range C F20 of Figure 7. Using proportional odds model A common approach used to create ordinal logistic regression models is to assume that the binary logistic regression models corresponding to the cumulative probabilities have the same slopes, i.
This is the proportional odds assumption. Figure 8 — Testing the proportional odds assumption As you can see these graphs are roughly parallel, indicating that the proportional odds assumption holds.
Figure 9 shows this model. Figure 9 — Proportional odds model Solver is used to maximize the value of LL i. We see that the value of LL is In any case, the result obtained from all three models are similar.
We therefore choose to initialize the coefficients with the intercepts from the three binary models and the slope coefficients from the first binary model. Using multinomial logistic regression We could of course ignore the order in Example 1 and simply use a multinomial logistic regression model.
The results are shown in Figure The values are similar to those we have seen earlier, but in general when the independent variables are ordered it is best to use an ordinal logistic regression model.Multiple regression cheat sheet Developed by Alison Pearce as an attendee of the ACSPRI Fundamentals of Regression workshop in June , taught by David Gow.
