Hi Maarten,

It is all figured out now. Many many thanks for your help on this issue!

I am probably having some syntax problem in Stata to get

you suggested, I am not sure which variables the vars
(neither the ids) stand for since what I got is the
following message

. gen miss = missing(lns1_1_1, lns2_1_1, lnsig_e)
lnsig_e not found

The var in my example stands for variable not variance. The miss
variable is there to make sure that you ignore missing values in
your estimation. A safer way in which you can also get that is by typing:

gen byte miss = !e(sample)

The ! is a negation, and e(sample) identifies those cases used in
the estimation

The ids are your grouping identifiers, so identifying whatever your j-index represents.
