From Q5 onward, Ordered Logit models are best performed using Regression - Ordered Logit. This page describes the legacy functionality.

*Ordered Logit* is estimated in Q when the **Dependent question** is a Pick One question and its Variable Type is Ordered Categorical and contains three or more categories.

See:

- Regression for a description of how to run a regression in Q.
- Regression Outputs for a description of the standard outputs.

## Additional outputs

With ordered logit, additional parameters are shown at the beginning of the output which relate to the thresholds for the categories. An understanding of the working of these thresholds is most readily obtained by checking the option for **Construct variable(s) containing predictions** and reviewing the JavaScript of the created variables (alternatively, review the first of the references provided in Regression Outputs.

## Additional Properties

When using this feature you can obtain additional information that is stored by the R code which produces the output.

- To do so, select
**Create > R Output**. - In the
**R CODE**, paste:`item = YourReferenceName` - Replace
`YourReferenceName`with the reference name of your item. Find this in the**Report tree**or by selecting the item and then going to**Properties > General > Name**from the object inspector on the right. - Below the first line of code, you can paste in snippets from below or type in
`str(item)`to see a list of available information.
