Modelling Binary Dependent Variables

What do you do if your dependent variable is binary? For example, what if we want to model the effect of the age of the respondent on whether or not the household owns a TV. This example goes through three different ways to do this (linear probability, logit and probit) and compares and graphs the different models. ... see the example

Fixed Effects

This example goes through these different ways and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each. ... see the example
