Sorry, I forgot to mention that I am using STATA 10 MP


Quoting Garry Anderson <>:


What version of Stata are you using?

Cheers, Garry

Dear Statalisters,

I would like to ask for your help in running a cox model with shared
frailty on unemployment duration. I have organized my data in a spell
file with in total 7,401 spells. I tried a very simple version of the

xi: stcox i.variable, shared(pid)

where pid is the person identification number and 'variable' has 4

The model has been running for the last 16 hours.

Some time ago, there were discussions in the statalist about it (see,
for example, I
understand from these discussions that the cox model with frailty runs
extremely slow due to the exact calculation of the partial likelihood
from STATA. As these questions were posted a few years ago, my question
is whether there has been developed a way to speed up the process. Or
would the only way be to drop the cox model and try a parametric one?

Thank you in advance.

Dimitris Pavlopoulos
