For example, . xtmixed (weight week) (id: week) is equivalent to . xtmixed weight week || id: week See the technical note on page 303 of [XT] xtmixed (Stata 10). There it states that, although both syntaxes are supported, the latter is predominant to emphasize the multiLEVEL aspect of the model rather than the multiEQUATION aspect. But you still need to colon after the level identifier. --Bobby rgutierrez@stata.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
