program produces about 100-200 iterations of the estimates which look
identical. Sometimes the estimates are identical upto the 3rd or 4th
decimal place. Do you think I should still wait longer for it to
On a similar note, when the iterations fail to converge, what can be
done? What does it say abt the data?
I am currently working on my dissertation and these questions are
driving me crazy. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
