Subject:   Relative importance of variables in multinomial regression
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

Hi list, Is there a way to identify the effects of different IV in multinomial regression? Menard (1995) and Long (1997) proposed how to calculate the standardized deviation, and it can be done also for every category of the DV in multinomial regression, but I want to estimate the relative importance of the IV for the complete model. Can I use The likelihood ratio test as a measure of the order of importance of my variables? Any other suggestion? TIA
