It is much faster, and I often switch to HLM for large datasets. However, I usually find it easier to work directly with HLM than through -hlm-. Even for bootstrapping a Stata dataset, I usually use -saveold- and then use HLM command line calls from within Stata. hth, Jeph Grigore Pop-Eleches wrote:

You're right that xtmixed does much of the same stuff but it runs excruciatingly slow on my computer (since I am using a very large dataset) and I had heard that hlm is significantly faster. ----- Original Message ---- From: Stas Kolenikov <skolenik@gmail.com> To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Sent: Wednesday, March 11, 2009 11:41:42 AM Subject: Re: st: hlm utility in Stata10Have you tried -xtmixed-? My understanding is that it covers most ofwhat you can imagine with hierarchical linear models, although theterminology might be different (biostatistics vs. social sciences).On 3/11/09, Grigore Pop-Eleches <grigopop@yahoo.com> wrote:Hello, I was wondering if you'd be kind enough to post the following question on Statalist. "I have been trying to run Sean Reardon's hlm utility in Stata 10, and even though I have successfully installed HLM 6.0 and the hlm module, and set the path name, I keep getting an error message in Stata saying "file HLM2MDM.STS not found" and in a separate window another message that HLM does not recognize my version of Stata. When running the mkmdm command, Stata creates a new .dta file, as well as a .mdmt and a .mdmvars file but not a .mdm file. Does anyone have an idea what could be going on? Does hlm only run with Stata 8.2 but not later versions? Or am I doing something wrong?
