GOLDMineR® 2.5 is a generalized regression program for predicting a dichotomous, ordinal, or grouped continuous outcome variables with specialized, interactive graphics (see product description below for more details). An extensive manual (250 pages) including examples and tutorials is available here.
GOLDMineR® is licensed on a perpetual basis (does not expire). Discounts for multiple users are automatically applied to your order (2-4 licenses – 15%, 5-9 licenses – 20%, 10+ licenses – 25%).
GOLDMineR® is an acronym for Graphical Ordinal Logit Displays based on Monotonic Regression and is a generalized regression program for predicting a dichotomous, ordinal, or grouped continuous outcome variables with specialized, interactive graphics.
It delivers the right regression framework to create better models. For example, while linear regression is fundamental in research, its measurement level requirements are not always met. Linear regression is not appropriate if a dependent variable is dichotomous or consists of ordered categories. For lack of good software alternatives, researchers often use it anyway for ordinal outcome variables, such as:
4. Very Likely
3. Somewhat Likely
2. Somewhat Unlikely
1. Very Unlikely
1. Mild Improvement
2. Moderate Improvement
1. Less than eight years of schooling
2. Eight – 11 years of schooling
3. 12 years of schooling
2. 13 or more years of schooling
1. Less than $15,000
2. $15,000 – $30,000
3. $30,000 – $50,000
4. $50,000 and above
GOLDMineR gives you innovative, patented graphical displays so you can easily interpret your effect estimates and visually assess your model. Output features both regression and loglinear statistics, including model summary R-square and goodness of fit chi-square statistics. A table window displays observed or expected counts, probabilities, odds or odds ratios. And an advanced search feature delivers automatic predictor variable selection, so you can easily select important predictors from your database. Plus, you can easily import data into GOLDMineR, since it reads a variety of file types, including the SPSS® system file format.
To summarize, GOLDMineR® has the following unique features:
GOLDMineR® is designed to operate on XP/Vista, Windows 7/8, Windows 10 or Windows 11.
System Requirements: 16MB Drive Space, 512MB of RAM.
