Re: Fitting a crossclassified model in Stata

Chapter five of the MCMC manual ( https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/mlwin/download/manuals.html ) discusses setting starting values, and you can find the Stata code to replicate this at https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/runmlwin/examples/ . It may be that once you investigate these you fin...

Re: Fitting a crossclassified model in Stata

The starting values from pql2 estimation would be based on the hierarchical model, which depending on how different the structure from the cross-classified version could be quite a different model. In some cases the hierarchical model could come up with some very different estimates (or even set som...

Re: Fitting a crossclassified model in Stata

Your syntax looks correct to me. If you remove the nogroup option from your command and then compare the extra grouping information provided between the IGLS and MCMC models you should see that the number of units within each group changes to match the cross-classification.

Re: Fitting a crossclassified model in Stata

This should just be a case of setting the cc flag in the mcmc option so that the specified levels are treated as classifications. For examples of this see the MCMC guide chapter 15 replication materials on https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/ ... /examples/.

Re: Import error from Excel-data previously importated without error

As part of the process of pasting data into MLwiN it writes a temporary macro using the ASSI command to read in the data. For current versions this is written to the Windows %TEMP% directory, however I think that back in 2.02 this may have used the application directory instead. If you open the Data...

Re: Extracting regression results

Thanks for the references. We did work on getting texreg to work with R2MLwiN, see https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/media/r2mlwin/MCMCGuide04.Rout for another example of using this, as well as the memisc package. Last time I looked at stargazer it didn't provide the option to extend it for more estimat...

Re: Extracting regression results

Which packages are you trying? We might be able to investigate whether it is possible to add support in a later version of R2MLwiN. You should be able to calculate these values yourself as follows: # coefficients coef(result_x36_main) # standard errors sqrt(diag(vcov(result_x36_main))) # z-score coe...

Re: problem with runmlwin

Are you able to provide any details regarding the error that you are seeing, i.e. information about the model you are trying to run and the text of the error message that you receive?

Re: 2-level multilevel model issues

Depending on the order in which you add variables to the model this can sometimes occur when using using simple notation (i.e. if it creates the cons column before it knows how large to make it. To fix this you just need to open the Data Manipulation->Generate Vector menu, choose cons as the output ...

Re: Multilevel Multinomial ERROR!!!

It sounds as if there may be a problem with your model specification. Can you describe how it is currently set up (perhaps with a screen-shot of the equations window)?
