Lara - I just tried the QIC program and got the same error. I always use the code provided by Hardin and Hilbe in their GEE book. Put in your own Y variable and X variables and run it like a do file: *From Hardin&Hilbe 2002 - Using QIC to determine the best correlation structure for the data. xtgee yvar x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 xm [pweight=wt], robust corr(ind) matrix A= e(V) matrix Ai= syminv(A) capture program drop qicm program define qicm args corr quietly { capture quietly xtgee yvar x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 xm [pweight=wt], robust corr(`corr') if (_rc !=0) { exit } matrix V = e(V) matrix T = Ai*V matrix t = trace(T) scalar off = t[1,1] tempvar ql quietly predict double mu, mu quietly generate double `ql' = (yvar*log(mu/(1-mu)) + log(1-mu)) quietly summarize `ql', meanonly } display in green "QIC = " in yellow 2*(off-r(sum)) end qicm ind drop mu qicm exch drop mu qicm "ar 1" drop mu qicm "ar 2" drop mu qicm unst drop mu qicm "sta 2" Sarah -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu on behalf of Lara Nobre Noronha Ferreira Sent: Thu 2/28/2008 9:28 AM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: QIC Program question to assess fit in xtgee Dear all, I have the same problem that Edward posted on QIC program (assess fit in xtgee): it gives the answer "p ambiguous abbreviation". I saw the asnswer by James Cui posted on the 24th February saying "This issue about QIC just draw my attention today. This problem variable name too short) has been fixed earlier. (.)The program can be downloaded from SSC." So I downloaded the program from SSC, but the report was that "all files already exist and are up to date". I ran the QIC program again and faced the same problem. I tried "display qic" and it gave a number, which I assume it's qic. Can anyone help me?
