RE: st: Fixed-effects and the ordered logit/probit model |

Dear all, This is a small "update" to the problem I posted before. Using a different ordered categorical dependent variable, Stata 8.2 doesn't tell me that the "outcome does not vary" this time. However, the output is as mysterious as before. Besides, -search r(2000)- is not particularly instructive. . rfprobit y2 x1 x2, i(country) Constant-only model rho = 0.0 Log Likelihood = -115.33963 rho = 0.1 Log Likelihood ~ -71.47475 rho = 0.2 Log Likelihood ~ -53.679395 rho = 0.3 Log Likelihood ~ -43.642044 rho = 0.4 Log Likelihood ~ -37.060202 rho = 0.5 Log Likelihood ~ -31.396172 rho = 0.6 Log Likelihood ~ -25.898749 rho = 0.7 Log Likelihood ~ -21.31849 rho = 0.8 Log Likelihood ~ -18.051591 rho = 0.9 Log Likelihood ~ -15.209674 Iteration 0: Log Likelihood = -15.209674 (nonconcave function encountered) rho >= 1, set to rho = 0.99 rho >= 1, set to rho = 0.99 rho >= 1, set to rho = 0.99 Iteration 1: Log Likelihood = -10.397214 (nonconcave function encountered) no observations r(2000); Does anyone have an idea? Yours, Tobias PS: If this question (or the last one) is utterly stupid, please tell me! ;-] -----Original Message----- From: Tobias Hofmann Sent: Monday, September 06, 2004 4:53 PM To: 'statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu' Subject: RE: st: Fixed-effects and the ordered logit/probit model Dear Statalisters, Having read Marc's quick response to Eric's question, I just wanted to give those two commands (-reoprob- and -gllamm-) a try. However, the (non-existent) results were rather disappointing. Running -reoprob- Stata 8.2 told me "outcome does not vary" and running -gllamm- Stata has not even bother to tell me anything within the last 25 minutes. What could be the reasons for these strange results? Thanks for your help, Tobias PS: The model consists of one dependent variable with 3 different values (1, 2 and 3), two continuous independent variables, 15 countries and 20 years. -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Sent: Monday, September 06, 2004 3:33 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu; Eric Neumayer Subject: Re: st: Fixed-effects and the ordered logit/probit model Eric, Quoting Eric Neumayer <e.neumayer@lse.ac.uk>: > Hi, > > the statistic for computing an ordered logit/probit model with fixed > effects is extremely complex, which is why Stata has no routine such > as xtoprobit or xtologit, right?

As others in the thread pointed out, the most appealing alternative is probably random effects ordered probit using -reoprob- or -gllamm-.
