Factor with one categorical indicator?
Categorical Data Modeling
posted on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 - 12:57 am
i order to to achieve linear regression coefficients from a predictor, would it be appropriate to model a factor for an observed categorical variable - even if there is only one observed categorical variable?
The syntax I have in mind looks like this:
USEVARIABLES ARE x u1;
CATEGORICAL IS u1;
F by u1;
F ON x;

I would not do that. There is no need - you already have a linear regression with the continuous latent response variable u1* as the DV.
This is explained our new book.
