Abstract

In this talk, I will discuss some techniques available in Stata for analyzing dependent variables that are proportions. I will discuss four programs: betafit, glm, dirifit, and fmlogit. The first two deal with situations where we want to explain only one proportion, while the latter two deal with situations where we have for each observation multiple proportions that must add up to one. I will focus on how to interpret the results of these models and on the relative strengths and weaknesses of these models.
