Dear Stata Experts,
I would like to estimate a model of occupational

each of the following 3 sequential decision nodes:
Unfortunately, not many people answers questions on -gllamm-. I try

responses to -gllamm- questions on Statalist.
-gllamm- can fit a variety of choice models e.g. with
alternative-specific covariates and multilevel structure of the data.
Some of them are a bit complicated to implement and needs reshaping of
the data, generation of alternative-dummy variables and the use of the
There is a brief example of a choice model with alternative specific
covariates in the manual (chapter 9) that can be downloaded here:

not discuss how to implement them with -gllamm-. There are however some
.do files and datasets available for download here
My guess is that the forthcoming book by Sophia Rabe-Hesketh, Andrew
Pickles, and Anders Skrondal will be the long time needed revision of
the manual with direct references to -gllamm-

when it is released.
I can't say for sure, but if you have longitudinal/multilevel-data and
use Stata, then -gllamm- seems to me to be the obvious first choice.
I was thinking to use GLLAMM for this purpose but
since I'm new to the program I'm not sure whether it
might be suitable.
