RE: st: Predictions based on reoprob and gllamm
Thanks for the explanation!
Now my problem is that whatever I try with gllapred I get "insufficient
observations" in return. I have 2237 observations of 153 countries from the
years 1976-1995 (unbalanced dataset).
Given that I have too few observations for gllapred, how can I then present
my results so that the substantial impact of the most interesting
independent variables can be appreciated?
Thanks for your attention.
