Abstract:

This study focuses on the comparison of the choice based multinomial logit model and status based ordered logit model, which are widely used when the dependent variable is categorical with more than two levels. To do this, a survey data is used on the interest of individuals in politics in Turkey and ten countries that are members of the European Union. After determining the true model, it is clarified that the interest of individuals living in countries that are members of the European Union in politics remarkably differs from that of in Turkey. Additionally, significant individual characteristics on the tendency to politics are also given along with their marginal effect on the relative risk ratios.
