Ok, thanks, that makes sense. But can you tell if there is another problem with the code? Because even when I try to just run the following code at the individual level with the following code, I get an error message: "a not found" but as far as I can tell I have properly specified all the variables. Sorry for all the questions, but it is difficult learning a new program in isolation! -Rahsaan sort council courts police gen id=_n expand 3 sort id qui by id: gen response=_n gen item1=response==council gen item2=response==courts gen item3=response==police eq resp: item1 item2 item3 eq latent: muschri gentrust gllamm response, i(id) eq(resp) geq(latent) link(ologit) f(binom) Quoting Stas Kolenikov <skolenik@gmail.com>: > If you have three levels, then you would need more equations -- one > for each level.
