Hi there,I think that's not a problem of number of observations, but of total amount of RAM memory.

my problem is about maximum memory size stata can handle.

I tried to run the Nested logit command using stata.

my dataset consist of 15000 people and each with 77

choices. the dataset is about 200m. When I try to

run the program nlogit, it says that there is no room to add more variables due to width

You have the following alternatives:

1. Store existing variables more efficiently;

see help compress.

2. Drop some variables or observations; see help

drop. (Think of Stata's data area as the area of a

rectangle; Stata can trade off width and length.)

3. Increase the amount of memory allocated to

the data area using the set memory command; see help

memory.

r(902);

I compressed all the variable and set memory to 600m

which is the maximum that my OS would allow, it still

can't work.

What is the limit number of obs stata can handle?

I wonder if there is other ways of increasing memory

to make the program run.

thanks

If you're on a Windows OS computer, it may be a problem of fragmented memory: you can look on the net (for example mindbeat.com) for a RAM defrag tool (STATA needs not fragmented areas of RAM mem).

On the other hand you can also increase the total amount of virtual memory in your computer (see -set virtual on/off- for an efficient use of virtual mem in stata), and use it, but all processes will get slower.

Probably the best would be add new RAM mem slots on the machine!

Best rgds, Fabio.
