DRM: Stata module to fit Sobel's Diagonal Reference Model (DRM)
Caspar Kaiser ()
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
drm is a module to estimate several versions of Sobel's (Am. Soc. Rev. 1981, 1985) diagonal reference model. Diagonal reference models are especially suited for the estimation of effects of movements across levels of categorical variables like education or social class. drm allows for a number of extensions that go beyond Sobel's most simple model. In particular, weights are allowed to vary conditional on 'destinations' and 'origins' and may be interacted with an arbitrary linear combination of covariates. Furthermore, diagonal population means may be estimated conditional on a further (set of) variable(s). Finally, next to the linear link function, drm allows for logit as well as probit links to estimate models with a binary dependent variable.
