Thank for the tip Nick,

I have looked it up but again is not what I am looking for. Both nlogit and
nlogitrum use the clogit type of data. That is you have observations on the
characteristics of the alternatives (let's say n alternatives). For every
decision makers you have n observations recording the caracteristics of the
alternatives for that particular decision maker and one varaible that
records the chosen alternative.

I have mlogit type of data. One observation per decision maker, the
variables record the characterisitcs of the decision maker (her age, income,
educational level, occupation....) plus one varaible recording the chosen

I would like to know whether someone has developed a routine to estimate a
nested logit model from this type of data.

Thanks again

There is an article in the latest Stata Journal on 
random utility maximization nested logit, which may 
help. You can download the software
from within Stata.
