**Content-Type:** text/plain
Hi Margaret,

I think that SPSS cannot do ordered Probit analysis. SPSS can do only one
model for ordina Logistic regression but there are six ordinal regression
models.

If you want to report OR (odds ratio) you have to use regression models, if
not probit can be applied.

If you decide to apply logistic regression remember that these are these
regression models for ordinal responses:

1. Cumulative logit model (proportions odds)
2. Continuation-ratio model
3. Partial-proportional odds model
4. Polytomous logistic model
5. Adjacent-category logistic model
6. Stereotype logistic model

Proportions odds or cumulative logit model is the most popular ordinal
logistic model used and this is incorporated in SPSS, but you need to check
the proportional odds assumption and this may be checked with the Score
test. If this is violated you need to use partial-proportional odds model.

I have done similar analyses for one paper before using ordinal logistic
regression.

Email me, if you think is neccesary.

Good luck,

/Christian
