Dear Statalisters,

I'm running into an unexpected problem (ie I have not considered this might be problematic). I want to estimate a multinomial logistic model with mlogit. But my dependent variable holds 54 categories. Now, when I try to run mlogit I am informed there are too many categories.
 
Consulting the help file exerts that there is a maximum of 50 categories. Well, just 4 short . . .
My data is such that ordered or stereotype logistic regression (with a maximum of 30 outcomes) does not apply. 
Is there any way to get stata to accept more than 50 outcomes?

Regards,

Michael Tiemann.
