Subject:   Goodness of Fit in Ordinal Logistic
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

Dear All,

As I understand it, in ordinal logistic regression Model chi-square and Deviance chi-square may be both used to assess goodness-of-fit of the model. Also, that Model chi-square needs to be significant whereas Deviance chi-square must not for a good model fit. What happens when Model chi-square is found non-significant, and Deviance chi-square is also found non-significant? Which of the two statistics is to be followed? This is not a hypothetical question, it is the result SPSS produced for one of my datasets.

Thank you in advance.
