The test procedures in the linear regression model are based on the normal distribution of the error variable ∊ and thus on a normal distribution of the endogenous variable Y. However, in many fields of application this assumption may not be true. The response variable Y may be defined as a binary variable, or more generally, as a categorical variable. Thus Y has a binomial or a multinomial distribution.
