# st: not getting an expected result with gllamm

Dear people:
I am trying an artificial data set in order to understand gllamm from scratch, but the resulting output is not in accord with the MlWiN output, which seems correct to me:

group y x cons
1 5 1 1
1 7 3 1
1 9 5 1
2 4 2 1
2 6 4 1
2 8 6 1
3 3 3 1
3 5 5 1
3 7 7 1
4 2 4 1
4 4 6 1
4 6 8 1
5 1 5 1
5 3 7 1
5 5 9 1,
which gives five paralel straight lines (one for each group), each one with slope=1 and intercepts 4, 2, 0 -2, 4.
I used the commands
eq inter:cons
. eq slope:x
. gllamm y x, i(group) eqs(inter slope) nrf(2) ip(m)
and got the following output:

snip...
Iteration 9: log likelihood = -26.673019

number of level 1 units = 15
number of level 2 units = 5

Condition Number = 27.992951

gllamm model

log likelihood = -26.673019
