Dear statalisters,

I use a bounded variable ( 0-100%) as the dependent variable  in
standard OLS regressions. To do so, I log-transformed the variable to
yield a unbounded variable.

Could you tell me if i have to use the log-transformed (unbounded)
variable for a random intercept model, or can I also use the initial
bounded variable?

best regards
Christian
