Multinomial logistic regression values

returns
the predicted probabilities for the multinomial logistic regression
model with predictors, `pihat`

= mnrval(`B`

,`X`

)`X`

, and the coefficient estimates, `B`

.

`pihat`

is an *n*-by-*k* matrix
of predicted probabilities for each multinomial category. `B`

is
the vector or matrix that contains the coefficient estimates returned
by `mnrfit`

. And `X`

is
an *n*-by-*p* matrix which contains *n* observations
for *p* predictors.

**Note**

`mnrval`

automatically includes a constant
term in all models. Do not enter a column of 1s in `X`

.

, returned
by `mnrfit`

.

The lower and upper confidence bounds for `pihat`

are `pihat`

minus `dlow`

and `pihat`

plus `dhi`

,
respectively. Confidence bounds are nonsimultaneous and only apply
to the fitted curve, not to new observations.

For example, you can specify the model type, link function, and the type of probabilities to return.
