st: -nlogit- |

Hi all, I am having some trouble performing a 2-level -nlogit-. Here is the segment of code I am having some trouble with: fillin uniqueNo EmployStatOfficial // Converts response into binary outcome rename _fillin chosen replace chosen = 1-chosen // Such that chosen = 1 if the individual has the corresponding employment status sort uniqueNo gender // Filling in missing values (which are present due to use of the fillin command): replace gender = gender[_n-1] if gender==. ........ replace gh23a = gh23a[_n-1] if gh23a ==. nlogitgen type = EmployStatOfficial(NotEconAct: 3, EconAct: 1 | 2) nlogittree EmployStatOfficial type, choice(chosen) // The following tree is then displayed: tree structure specified for the nested logit model type N EmployStat~l N k ----------------------------------------------------- NotEconAct 1511021 --- Not Econom~e 1511021 775534 EconAct 3022042 --- Employed 1511021 347228 +- Unemployed 1511021 388259 ----------------------------------------------------- total 4533063 1511021 k = number of times alternative is chosen N = number of observations at each level // I then want to perform an -nlogit- using the above structure. I'm not sure if I need to generate any new variables, or how I should structure the equation for the regression. The command I've tried was: nlogit chosen || type: gender (...other variables...) EmpStatHH || EmployStatOfficial:, noconstant case(uniqueNo) I then get the following messages: note: 1 case (2087331 obs) dropped due to no positive outcome or multiple positive outcomes per case note: branch 1 of level 1 is degenerate and the associated dissimilarity parameter ([NotEconAct_tau]_cons) is not defined; see help nlogit for details no equations have been specified to identify the alternatives defined in variable EmployStatOfficial; see nlogit for the proper syntax r(198); I am attempting to perform a logistic regression using certain parameters at the Economically Active/Not Economically Active stage, and then another regression using different parameters at the Unemployed/Employed stage (should the Economically Active branch be chosen). Please could you help with what I need to change in my nlogit equation, including how to deal with the degenerate nest. I'm also not sure if perhaps -clogit- would be more appropriate? I hope my explanations are clear enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
