dear all, I'm investigating financing decisions of small firms and I'm using a nested logit to model them. When I use STATA 8, I always get dots in the (IV params) section, as follows: nlogit Dchoice (posschoi= lsdsd_o lsdsd_b lrdinten_o lrdinten_b lage_o lage_b ) (ext_int= llncapinv_a lincen_a ltgasset_a lcashflo_a llever_a difflev_a), group(grp) tree structure specified for the nested logit model top --> bottom ext_int posschoi -------------------------- debt 0 1 autof 2 initial: = -890.61013 rescale: = -890.61013 rescale eq: = -881.41885 Iteration 0: log likelihood = -881.41885 Iteration 1: log likelihood = -881.11793 (backed up) Iteration 2: log likelihood = -881.11422 (backed up) Iteration 3: log likelihood = -880.78024 (backed up) Iteration 4: log likelihood = -880.54555 (backed up) Iteration 5: log likelihood = -880.43086 (backed up) Iteration 6: log likelihood = -880.41612 (backed up) Iteration 7: log likelihood = -880.36322 (backed up) Iteration 8: log likelihood = -880.32841 (backed up) Iteration 9: log likelihood = -880.29477 (backed up) Iteration 10: log likelihood = -879.81536 (backed up) Iteration 11: log likelihood = -879.79723 (backed up) Iteration 12: log likelihood = -879.37898 Iteration 13: log likelihood = -879.03583 Iteration 14: log likelihood = -878.85494 BFGS stepping has contracted, resetting BFGS Hessian (0) Iteration 15: log likelihood = -878.77095 Iteration 16: log likelihood = -878.75297 (backed up) Iteration 17: log likelihood = -878.75255 (backed up) Nested logit Levels = 2 Number of obs = 3972 Dependent variable = Dchoice LR chi2(12) = 1151.62 Log likelihood = -878.75255 Prob > chi2 = 0.0000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ | Coef.

Notice that all regressors are interacted with alternative specific constants ("o" for alternative 0, "b" for alternative 1, "a" for alternative 2 in the tree above), as all explanatory variables are firm specific attributes. I do not have choice specific attributes. I have tried several specifications, some of them include alternative specific constants, some do not (as the one reported above), but the same result pops up for the INCLUSIVE VALUE /autof: its coefficient is either 1 or 0.5, but its standard error is always missing... What could it be the cause of it?
