Joseph, Thanks. Yes, and no. Yes in that xtmelogit for crossed-level model uses Laplace approximation. However, when I tried specifying the intpoints option, STATA generates an error message as below: . xtmelogit fail refinance || _all:R.year || _all:R.hub || _all:R.originator_n, intpoints(5 5 5) wrong number of intpoints() specifications r(198); Could you tell me what went wrong?

If so, I apologize in advance. I'm estimating a logistic model with crossed-level random effects. The outcome binary variable is fail with one fixed-effect independent binary variable refinance. The three crossed-level random effects are VAR1, VAR2 and VAR3. The STATA command I used is as below: xtmelogit fail refinance || _all:R.VAR1 || _all:R.VAR2 || _all:R.VAR3 After estimating this model, I tried to recover the random effects of VAR3 using: predict u, reffects level(VAR3) However, u only contains missing values. I would very much appreciate if someone can help me recovering these predicted random effects. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Doesn't -xtmelogit- use Laplace approximation by default when fitting a cross-classified model? I believe that you would need to specify at least three, or so, integration points (abscissa weights) in order to get empirical Bayes predictions of individual random effects.
