Maarten and Nick,

Thank you very much for your replies. My question is:

I want to model the choice of work schedules, such as work 6 days, 7
days, 8 days, 9 days, and 10 days (regular) per two  weeks. The choice
of work schedule is not ordered, but when we look at it from the
perspective of working days, it is ordered. So, I would like to try
ordered logit model (ologit). My problem is that for some of the
employees, some of the work schedules are not available (not allowed).
This means, for each of the observations, the choice set is not
identical. I know in some other softwares the solution is to have
multiple row for each observation and have an index varibale to
indicate which alternative is available, I am just not clear how STATA
handle this situation, especially for the ologit commant.

Thanks again.

Liren
