A new family of test statistics for testing linear hypotheses in baseline-category logit models is introduced and its asymptotic distribution is obtained. The new family is a natural extension of the classical likelihood ratio test. A simulation study is carried out to find new test statistics that offer an attractive alternative to the classical likelihood ratio test in terms of both exact size and exact power.
