Dear all,
for those of you who might be interested.  As of now Stata doesn't do Mixed
Logits but I hope it will be incorporated into future versions.  For now, if
anybody is interested, there are three venues (according to my research) as
I explain ahead.  In general, it seems to me that none of the options are
more user-friendly than Stata.  I do hope Stata will develop mixed logits.
I'm wondering if Stata couldn't create a command by "translating" Dr.
Train's code from Gauss?
Anyway, the options are:
1 ) Limdep (and Nlogit),
2) Gauss code of Prof. Train at UC Berkeley
3) Biogeme (free software) - requires running commands from DOS.
Option 2) seems to be the most powerful but requires Gauss.
