Dear All,
Sometimes the output from logit reports log-pseudo likelihood instead of
log-likelihood --
I do not know why -- Where can I find documentation of this?

I am using stata 8.2 on ms windows.

TIA, Marwan
Also, there are some FAQs pertaining to robust standard errors and maximum likelihood estimation at

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/#robust

If you are getting pseudo-likelihoods in situations where robust standard errors are not involved (and remember, robust SEs can be forced by various options; the output will tell you if robust SEs are being used) please provide details.
