Proportional odds logistic regression model: F-statistics, Multiple R-squared and Adjusted R-squared



I'm running a "polr" model, but in the output of course, there is no F-statistics, Multiple R-squared and Adjusted R-squared.

Does anyone has an idea, what could be an other alternative to measure them and the goodness of the fit of the model?

  • For the R-squared I thought maybe a pseudo R-squared would be an alternative but for the F-statistics I don't have any idea.

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards



The differences in assessing the output of a proportional odds logistic regression and an ordinary least squared regression are analogous to the differences with logistic regression (discussed at . Basically, you get the ammunition for applying test statistics, which it's up to the analyst to decide which are appropriate for the data and purpose, which is often domain-specific.
