Re: Problem with savechains(filename , replace)

Thanks for the confirmation. I have now updated the development version so that if no file extension is specified it will add ".dta" to the name that the user specified.

Re: 3 level cross-classified model: how to set level 2 and 3?

Have you checked the MCMC chain and convergence diagnostics? It may be that you have to run the model for more iterations before it converges to a distribution. I would also suggest removing the nopause option to check within MLwiN via the Model->Hierarchy Viewer window that you have the expected nu...

Re: autocorrelation problem in within-between random effect model

I can't see anything obviously wrong with the generated script. Could you please make sure that you are using the most recent version of MLwiN (v3.04) available from https://www.cmm.bristol.ac.uk/clients/softwaredownload/ ? If that doesn't make a difference could you see whether you still get the pr...

Re: autocorrelation problem in within-between random effect model

Sorry, I mis-remembered the option. It should be viewfullmacro . If the equation output is saying (0 of 0 cases in use) then there is likely to be a problem as this indicates that there is no data for the program to work on. Can you check the Data Manipulation->Names window within MLwiN to ensure th...

Re: Problem with savechains(filename , replace)

One other thing to check is whether adding the ".dta" file extension to the end of specified file name fixes this for you.

Re: Problem with savechains(filename , replace)

Before we start to look into this too closely could you please try your model with the development version of runmlwin.ado (available from https://bitbucket.org/cmm_stata/runmlwin/src/master/) and let us know whether the same problem occurs there?

Re: autocorrelation problem in within-between random effect model

Have you tried running with the nopause option removed to see whether there are any errors reported within MLwiN? Could you try running the command with the showfullmacro option and report the contents of the MLwiN script that it displays so that we can check whether there is anything obviously wron...

Re: autocorrelation problem in within-between random effect model

Could you provide more details on how the fpsandwich option isn't working for you (i.e. do you get an error/wrong results/etc)? You will need to specify both fpsandwich and rpsandwich if you want robust standard errors for both the fixed and random parts of your model.

Re: 3 level cross-classified model: how to set level 2 and 3?

In order to fit a cross-classified model you need to add cc to the mcmc options, otherwise the model will be fitted as hierarchical. This should be reflected in group summary information in the model output. Note that even after doing so the results from switching the levels around, as in your examp...

Re: Saving residuals chains

Could you please confirm whether this also happens with the development version of runmlwin (available from https://bitbucket.org/cmm_stata/runmlwin/src/master/ )? To test this you need to replace your version of runmlwin.ado with the version on the linked page. You can find where this is installed ...
