Estimation of Models with Jointly Dependent Qualitative Variables: A Simultaneous Logit Approach<745:EOMWJD>2.0.CO;2-V
p. 745-755

Peter Schmidt, Robert P. Strauss

This paper considers the estimation of a simultaneous equations model in which the dependent variables are qualitative. The model is a simultaneous version of the multivariate logit model, and can be estimated by maximum likelihood. An example is presented, dealing with the prediction of occupation and industry of employment of a worker based on certain demographic variables.
