This article takes issue with propositions tendered in Roncek (1991) regarding the definitions of odds and odds ratios, the interpretation of the partial slope, and an emphasis on using predicted probabilities to convey the impact of categorical predictors in logit analysis. This article correctly defines odds and odds ratios, provides the correct interpretation of the partial slope, and argues that the interpretation of results in terms of odds and odds ratios is at times preferable to a focus on probabilities.
