A bivariate logistic regression model based on latent variables

Research output: Working paperResearch


Bivariate observations of binary and ordinal data arise frequently and require a bivariate modelling approach in cases where one is interested in aspects of the marginal distributions as separate outcomes along with the association between the two. We consider methods for constructing such bivariate models with logistic marginals and propose a model based on the Ali-Mikhail-Haq bivariate logistic distribution. We motivate the model as an extension of that based on the Gumbel type 2 distribution as considered by other authors and as a bivariate extension of the logistic distribution which preserves certain natural characteristics. Basic properties of the obtained model are studied and the proposed methods are illustrated through analysis of two data sets, one describing the trekking habits of Norwegian hikers, the other stemming from a cognitive experiment of visual recognition and awareness.
