Hello Statalist,

I have a question regarding the integration of random effects into a
conditional (fixed) effects logistic model.  I am comparing attributes of
locations used by elk to locations they were not present in.  So used sites
are coded as 1 and available sites (randomly selected area near each used
site) are coded as 0.  This is actually a 1:n matched case design in that I
have 20 randomly selection locations to each used location. I compare use to
availability by a series of continuous as well as categorical environmental
covariates.  Since I am studying multiple individuals I would like to
include a random effect of individual and in particular I would like to
assess if individuals differ in their magnitude of association with
different variables (due to environmental gradients).  Thus, I would like to
include random coefficients.  I am experienced with XTLOGIT and GLLAMM to
some degree but haven't quite figured out how to accomplish a conditional
logistic model with random effects.  It has been recommended to me that I
might accomplish a random "intercept" model using a stratified Cox model
where the strata are each set of used and available points at each time
step.  I have used STCOX for survival analyses and this alternative use
isn't clear to me, if anyone has any experience with this can you comment?
Even if it does work though I don't see how random coefficients could be
included, at least in the Stata version.  Does anyone see a way to use
GLLAMM to accomplish a 1:n matched case logistic model?  I thought perhaps
through the mlogit link but haven't gotten my head around it yet.  I'm
hoping someone on this list may have experience and can give me some

Thank you.
