Dear all,

Will you please let me know, how I can 'label' data?  I typed in "label 
var ..." thing, which does not return any error message, but then if I try 
to decode it, it says "year not labeled".  I don't know what to do with 
this.    Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much!

Ayako Saiki

But I have a mle for RE probit in stata and I have just run that and find that my results are exactly the same as Limdep's.

> The coefficients being different by a very small number does not matter. But the problem I have with Stata xtprobit is that it gives me a zero 'rho' with no std error. Limdep always gives me an estimate of 'rho' with a well defined std error. I have a general program which I am going to change now and check the results against stata's results. I will let you know the outcome.
