st: can Stata be used for this problem |

Hey Statalisters I try to analyze immigrants' decision on training but do not know whether Stata can be used or not. I have read GLAMM manual but it seems it cannot (maybe I am wrong, plz remind me if so). so, what command/s would suit to my model? any suggestion are appreciated. here is my model: Vijt = X*beta + ipsilon_ijt ipsilon_ijt = mu_j + sigma_t where i means individual, j the decision/choice and t the period. thus Vijt is the utility individual i can get from choice j at time t. X are know vector of variables with parameter vector beta ipsilon is the residual which consist of a well behaved sigma and unkonw hetrogeneity among individuals mu, which have the form mu_j = alpa_j + gama_j*eta eta is individual types. that is, the intercept and slope of the laten variable mu both depend on the his/er choice. the model will be Vijt = X*beta + alpa_j + gama_j*eta + sigma_t alpa, beta, gama are parameters that need to be estimated. from the Gllamm manual, I think it is only suit to models which the mu does not change along the choice. I wish I made my research quesiton clear. if not, I will try again. any suggestion are really appreciated. if Stata doesn't fit in this model and there is some other software could, plz feel free to mention them. thanks a lot for that.
