Karin, this was suggested in another thread about a week ago and I
think it applies here too:
You can try -icc23-, which is downloadable in Stata (type: findit icc23).

It will compute four types of intra-class correlations (ICC) -- [2,1],
[2,k], [3,1], [3,k] -- easier than xtmixed.
Are you interested in one of these ICC models or in something else?
