The two commands, among other things, are compared in the book
"Multilevel and Longitudinal Modeling Using Stata". The book is
available in the Stata bookstore, see For example, see section
6.7.2. We cannot comment on your "dramatically different results"
until you describe your models. One obvious difference is that gllamm
is a user-written command whereas xtmelogit is an official command.
But similar models will give similar results.

> Good evening statalisters.  I have been looking into multilevel modeling with stata and have come to an impasse.  I cant figure out the difference between gllamm and xtmelogit.  I have run analyses in both and end up with dramatically different results.  Can anyone describe the differences between the two and why one would use one versus the other?  And what factors they use to make the decision which to use??
