st: rcal, measurement error model question |

I'm a new user who is trying to fit a simple measurement error model to a set of estimates from two independent surveys. The surveys are measuring the same things. My data look like (e1, v1) = set of 30 estimates and their variances from survey 1 (e2, v2) = set of 30 estimates and their variances from survey 2 The model I want to fit is basic: e1 = a + b*e2 + u1 e2 = E2 + u2 (u1 and u2 are the model errors, E2 is E(e2) ) I've tried: mkmat v2 mat D = diag(v2) rcal (e1) (w: e2), suuinit(D) This gives "invalid syntax". If I put some arbitrary variable x in the model (which I don't want), this works: rcal (e1=x) (w: e2), suuinit(D) But rcal apparently does not allow aweights to account for v1 = var(e1). Is there a way to use rcal or some other procedure to fit the model above, accounting for the fact that I have (1) estimates of variance for both e1 and e2 and (2) no covariates measured without error to put in the model?
