Dear Stas and Maarten:thank you for your kindness. But it seems that neither -xtmelogit-nor -xtmepoisson- nor gllamm do apply, because the responsevariable is not binary or count. For example, for -xtmelogit- theoutput is odds ratio. Rabe-Hesketh presents growth curve only inlinear and quadratic polynomial forms.I am interested in continuous variables, as kg, or m, or bmi (bodymass index), that moves through time according to a logistic curve,but not a curve of probability from 0 to 1.Singer & Willett use an iterative maximum likelihood procedureproposed by Pinheiro & Bates (Mixed-Effects Models in S and S-Plus,Springer, 2000, pages 337-347); the response variable inPinheiro & Bates example is the trunk circumference (in mm) oftrees, and time is day. Each tree is measured seven times.José Maria By the way, I am not able to write anything in Mata!

I believe Singer & Willett only talk about logistic models there, right? You can say those are nonlinear models since the mean functions are nonlinear in x's; to me those are extensions of generalized linear model, and hence there is at least some linear flavor to them. PROC NLMIXED can fit some crazy models with direct integration of the random effects (as far as I know), and full functionality of that is not available in Stata (at least in the easily available commands; you can write anything you want in Mata!)

Stata does not yet do nonlinear mixedmodels." Isit possible now to do such analysis in Stata? Than you for any orientation.
