Why not? I guess because only a few
kinds of rather basic comment seem possible.
First, it is possible that your data
are not suitable for this model.
You need to think about that.
Second, -nlogitrum- offers handles for
varying the maximization process in using
-ml- to fit the model, particularly important
when defaults run into problems. Those are documented
and explained in various standard places, e.g.
documentation on -ml- and the Gould and
friends book on the same area of Stata.
