I'm really a beginner in Stata. I've read the help of gllamm and have no idea on how to set it up. I would be very greatfull if anybody could help me with this. Following the help, I think it would be something like this: gllamm Y Z C Csquared, link(logit) fam(binom) i(V001) V001: the cluster to which each individual belongs to in my data (DHS). pwi: the weights for each individual But how could I manage with the correlation between C and e (the error term of the latent variable Y*)?? 2008/6/10 jverkuilen <jverkuilen@gc.cuny.edu>: > Did you try setting it up in -gllamm-? > > -----Original Message----- > From: "Leda Inga" <ledainga@gmail.com> > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Sent: 6/9/2008 7:53 PM > Subject: Re: st: About the consequence of doing a two step estimation manually > > Thank you very much.

Consequently the second-stage estimation is going to produce estimates with standard errors that are too small. A question that one might ask is why you want to do this manually.
