    transform probit into logit

    Hi everyone,

    is there a way to transform results obtained from a probit regression into results obtained from a logit regression? I am looking for some kind of formular that I could use in R.

    I am doing a path analysis in R (lavaan), and if you use binary outcomes you can't use the logit link function. I feel like the interpretation of results would be easier if I would be able to get logits (odds) as results.

    I would not do that. Probit coefficients are probit coefficients and logit coefficients are logit coefficients. Any attempt to try to approximate one with the other will lead to too much confusion with your audience. You could use Stata, which does enable you to use the logit link function in a path analysis (the commandname is gsem).
