Subject  Re: st: Fixing an ml model syntax problem 
Date  Tue, 20 Feb 2007 11:53:27 0600 
For fun, I thought I'd test out an old piece of Stata code I found in Allison (1999: 2034) that fires up a logit model which takes into account unequal residual variation across groups. I'm sure it's just a minor thing, but I'm having problems running his Stata 6 routine, which utilizes ml code:
webuse union, clear
program define gplogit
version 6
args lnf theta delta
qui replace `lnf' =
$ML_y1*`theta'*(1+`delta')
ln(1+exp(`theta'*(1+`delta')))
end
ml model lf gplogit (union = age black grade south) ///
(delta: black,nocons)
ml maximize
Using Glenn Hoetker's complogit routine shows there is residual variation and actions the above model. Unfortunately, all I get with this code is
invalid syntax
r(198);
which is rather puzzling, as I can't see a lot wrong. Can anyone solve this puzzle?
