Two things: 1. I ran the empty model (no predictors) using -xtmelogit- and it was still going after 24 hours. I have dozens of models to run; HLM6 did them all in less than 20 minutes total. Not sure if that counts as functionality. 2. As for my code, check to see what "exactly" mat input A = (3 -5) mat li A produces. Not quite what you expected; the -input- qualifier obviates the commas. cheers, Jeph Stas Kolenikov wrote: > Uhm... just an idea: re-run the analysis using -xtmixed- and -post- to > work out any summaries of any particular analysis that you need as you > go?..
