I am working on model that involves a dummy dependent variable with probabilty of occurance of event (0,1) and ordinal independent variables (with the value increasing with the number of times another event happened) along with dummy control variables. Moreover, I am analyzing panel data. which model should i use?!
You could choose among using the Linear Probability, the Logit/Logistic or the Probit models.
The choice between those two models depends on the data you're going to analyze and the assumptions you assume to get the model estimates.
IMHO, you should generally use the Logistic model, as you suggested in the question, since it has more relaxed assumptions and more fat-tails distribution with respect to the normal distribution assumed in the LPM (Linear Probability Model) and probit model. I'd avoid using the LPM because it does not often estimate the predicted probability bounded between a range from 0 and 1, as it should be.
Hope this helps.
