the usual manner. The class of models known as heterogeneous discrete choice models (e.g., Alvarez and Brehm, 199511) has been proposed for analysis of this type of data.
We again fitted a generalized linear model to the binary outcome indicating the promotion decision and accounted for possible correlation between cases in the same department within the same institution by implementing the method of GEE to obtain improved standard errors for all model parameters. Most of the explanatory variables in the promotion decision model were the same as those used earlier in the tenure decision model. Here, however, we considered the percentage of women among tenured associate professors to be the “promotion pool.”
