Thanks for the advice on Q1. I do stset for patient-level data, but most quality assurance data in medical practice is reported at unit-level. Panel data approaches are useful for analysing such data, offsetting by a variety of measures to account for unit-level casemix... Any thoughts on Q2?

Have you considered -stset-ting?
