Consistent Estimation of the Fixed Effects Ordered Logit Model
by Gregori Baetschmann, Kevin E. Staub, Rainer Winkelmann
(January 2011)
published in: Journal of the Royal Statistical Society A, 2015, 178, 685703.

The paper re-examines existing estimators for the panel data fixed effects ordered logit model, proposes a new one, and studies the sampling properties of these estimators in a series of Monte Carlo simulations. There are two main findings. First, we show that some of the estimators used in the literature are inconsistent, and provide reasons for the inconsistency. Second, the new estimator is never outperformed by the others, seems to be substantially more immune to small sample bias than other consistent estimators, and is easy to implement. The empirical relevance is illustrated in an application to the effect of unemployment on life satisfaction.
