st: VS: RE: mlogit with constraints
Thank you for your suggestion, Scott. However, it did not solve my problem since the comparison group was already multi==1. So, I still do not know what causes the message: redundant or inconsistent constraints.
I tried the following set-up of the constraints and these constraints seem to work in the estimation. However, I am not sure whether this is what I want, i.e. to constrain some of the coefficients related to the explanatory variables to be zero. In this case the constrained coefficient is dropped from the equation.
constraint define 1  L2debt
constraint define 2  debttoas23
1:  L2debt
2:  debttoas23
I would be grateful for any help with the constraints. I would like to know what is the difference between setting up coinstraints like above and my original constraints: constraint 1  L2debt=0 and constraint 2  debttoas23=0?
Thank you in advance.

I suspect you have defined a constraint for the base category (either
equation 2 or 3). You could use the basecategory(#) option to change the
value of dependent variable that is treated as the base category.
Hope this helps,
