Logistic probability models—models linear in the log odds of the outcome event—have found extensive application in modelling of unordered categorical responses. This paper illustrates some extensions of logistic models to the modelling of probabilities of ordinal responses. The extensions arise naturally from discrete probability models for the conditional distribution of the ordinal response, as well as from linear modelling of the log odds of response. Methods of estimation and examination of fit developed for the binary logistic model extend in a straightforward manner to the ordinal models. The models and methods are illustrated in an analysis of the dependence of chronic obstructive respiratory disease prevalence on smoking and age.
