Hello Zai,
One way of doing this is as a "multinomial conditional logit" (MCL)
model. The idea is to use program for a conditional logit model to
estimate an multinomial logit model. This will produce the same
results but allows you to impose constraint on the parametrization of
the dependent variable.
More information is available at http://home.wanadoo.nl/john.hendrickx/statres/mcl/
The LR.SAS program at http://home.wanadoo.nl/john.hendrickx/statres/mcl/sas/
shows how to estimate a multinomial logistic model using PROC PHREG.
For a dependent variable with 3 categories, you'd have to make the
following modification:
array y{3};
do i=1 to 3;
if newy <= i then y[i]=1i/3;
else y[i]=i/3;
end;
(And create interactions of y: with your independent variables).
Good luck,
