Hello everybody, I am trying to estimate a dynamic probit model with a lagged dependent binary variable. I am using the -redprob- command (from Prof. Mark Steward, University of Warwick, 2006) to take care of the initial conditions problem (using Stata 10.1). The command looks like: redprob depvar varlist (varsinit) [if exp] [in range] [, i(varname) t(varname) quadrat(#) from(matname) ] where varlist contains the lagged dependent (binary) variable, varsinit contains determinants of the outcome in the first year, i(varname) is the cross-section identifier, t(varname) the time-identifier, quadrat(#) specifies the number of of Gaussian--Hermite quadrature points for the evaluation of the required integral and from(matname) specifies a matrix containing starting values for the parameters of the model. Redprob estimates a random effects dynamic probit model by Maximum Likelihood. The default for the "from" matrix uses a pooled probit for t>1 and a separate probit for the intial period. If I specify from(e(b)), i get the error: could not calculate numerical derivatives flat or discontinuous region encountered r(430) If I do not specify any from() option, I get the error: Probit Model for t=1 no observations r(2000) It would be great if somebody could help me on this problem.
