Probit analysis, Advanced Statistics

Probit analysis is the technique most commonly employed in the bioassay, specifically toxicological experiments where the group of animals is subjected to known levels of a toxin and a model is needed to relate the proportion surviving at the particular dose, to the dose. In this kind of evaluation the probit transformation of a proportion is modeled as a linear function of the dose or more frequently, the logarithm of the dose. Estimates of the parameters in the model are found by the maximum likelihood estimation.
