Testing Logit Models in Practice

Author

Listed:
  • Lechner, Michael

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to provide the practioner with easily implementable procedures, both numerical and graphical, to test the specification of the dichotomous, linear-in-coefficients logit model. We discuss the performance of these asymptotic methods in small samples on the basis of Monte Carlo simulations and apply them to a cross-section study of female labor supply in West Germany.
