Problem with directing to correct pages

Hi all,
I have a page where I trying to direct to two different pages based on what the user selects from the drop-down. For some reason this script is no longer functioning for me and keeps directing to the reg1dborg.php page regardless of what the user selects. Is there a better way of doing this or could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
Thanks so much,
D

<?php
if (array_key_exists('cat_select', $_POST)) {
  $chosenoption = ($_POST['cat_select'] == '1') ? '1' : '3';
  if ($chosenoption == 'yes')
    header('location: reg1dbper.php');
  else
    header('location: reg1dborg.php');
}  ?>

      <option value="3">Organisation</option>
    </select>

    <label for="Submit"></label>
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Proceed" id="Submit" />
</p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

// here you assign either '1' or '3' to $chosenoption
$chosenoption = ($_POST['cat_select'] == '1') ? '1' : '3';
so, this should be
  if ($chosenoption == '1') // or '3'

Thanks TeRReF,
Is this the best way to do it. Do I really need to send the page back to itself first?
Thanks

I think so.
Of course there is Javascript you can use, but that will exclude some users since not everyone has it enabled in their browsers...
