```Dear Statalisters,

I have the following dataset (except I have it in long format-one measurement per row) :
```
WireType	WireNo	Trial		Force

A	A1	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
A	A2	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
A	A3	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
A 	A4	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
A	A5	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial

B	B1	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
B	B2	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
B	B3	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
B	B4	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
B	B5	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial

C	C1	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
C	C2	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
C	C3	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
C	C4	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
C	C5	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial

D	D1	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
D	D2	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial
D	D3	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial

D	D5	1,2,3,4,5	      5 measurements-1 per trial

I am testing the forces generated by 4 different wiretypes to see if there are significant differences. For each wiretype (categorical A B C D) I am using 5 specimens (A1-5,..D1-5) and for each specimen I am repeating the measurement 5 times.
```The outcome is force and it is a continuous variable.

```
This looks like a repeated measures with each trial nested in the WireNo and the WireNo nested inside WireType?
```
```
I was trying to use the xtgee command but I was not sure how to construct it:
```xi:xtreg force i.xxxxx i.yyyyyy, i(zzzzz) ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you very much,

Nikolaos
