I have a huge amount of features that are categorical variables and I'm trying to find a system for weeding out categorical variables that are close to being multicollinear. Is vif a reasonable measure in the context of categorical variables? Would pearson's chi-squared be a good measure of association between categorical variables? I've also heard mention of polychoric correlation.
Edit 1: For vif on categorical variables, I'd need to use the r-squared from a linear probability model right? I'm assuming you can't use pseudo-r-squared since it's a completely different animal.
