Ordinal Regression or Probit Analysis?

#1
Hi Guys,

I am currently researching the survival rates of hedge funds. I am trying to find the effect of certain fund characteristics (risk, fees, age, size, etc) on rate of survival. I have both dead and live funds in my sample.

I am a bit confused as to which methodology to follow...Is there any difference between using an Ordinal regression and a Probit Analysis? In the context of my study them seem to measure the same thing....

Would greatly appreciate any help I can get on this one!

Thanks,
