Re: st: random effects logit
Totally possible to get different results. The likelihood is in the manual.

I run random effects logit model using both STATA and LIMDEP, but the

likelihood function of random effects logit used in STATA program?
Sometimes differences are due to differences between algebraically
equivalent parameterizations. How do the fits of the models
compare? If they are different as well, I suspect you haven't
specified equivalent models like you think you have. You might post
the output from both.
In addition to Richard's suggestions, RE models need to deal with the
computation of an integral, which implies (1) define the number of points
to compute the quadrature and (2) get the integration method itself.
This could explain the differences.
More important, no matter which method you will use you need to check
that the quadrature is accurate. This is recommended in the manuals for
all the RE model. I don't know about LIMDEP.
