Martin - You're right - interesting discovery - thanks!

      command:  xtmixed (y ib) (isub: R.ib, cov(exchangeable)) (fd: R.ib, cov(exchangeable) nolog iter(20))
      _stat_1:  _b[ib]

But note that you can delimit the parts with round parantheses and make
things work:


***********
webuse productivity, clear
preserve
statsby _b[private],by(region): xtmixed (gsp private, noconst) (region:)
(state:, mle cov(exchangeable) nolog)
li
restore

statsby _b[private],by(region): xtmixed gsp private, noconst  || region: ||
state:, mle cov(exchangeable) nolog
***********

Apparently, in an -xtmixed_ command with more than one level, -statsby- can
only handle options in the fixed or random sections if such options occur
only once in the whole model:



option in the fixed part ony:

. statsby _b[ib],by(condition outcome) : xtmixed y ib, noconst ||isub: ib
||fd: R.ib
(running xtmixed on estimation sample)

      command:  xtmixed (y ib, noconst) (isub: ib) (fd: R.ib)
      _stat_1:  _b[ib]
           by:  condition outcome

Statsby groups
----+--- 1 ---+--- 2 ---+--- 3 ---+--- 4 ---+--- 5

[works]


option in the first random level only:


. statsby _b[ib],by(condition outcome) : xtmixed y ib ||isub: ib,noconst
||fd: R.ib
(running xtmixed on estimation sample)

      command:  xtmixed (y ib) (isub: ib, noconst) (fd: R.ib)
      _stat_1:  _b[ib]
           by:  condition outcome

Statsby groups
----+--- 1 ---+--- 2 ---+--- 3 ---+--- 4 ---+--- 5 

[works]




option in the second random level only:

. statsby _b[ib],by(condition outcome) : xtmixed y ib ||isub: ib  ||fd:
R.ib, noconst
(running xtmixed on estimation sample)

      command:  xtmixed (y ib) (isub: ib) (fd: R.ib, noconst)
      _stat_1:  _b[ib]
           by:  condition outcome

Statsby groups
----+--- 1 ---+--- 2 ---+--- 3 ---+--- 4 ---+--- 5 
.........

[works]




One option in the fixed part and one option in the first random level:

. statsby _b[ib],by(condition outcome) : xtmixed y ib, noconst ||isub:
ib,noconst  ||fd: R.ib
invalid 'noconst' 
r(198);


In general, -statsby- will fail if there is more than one option section
anywhere in the model.
