Hi Thomas I cought the bug in your program. THe key is that because u are using a non linear combination of X u need to declare it in such a way that you can freely manipulate it on stata. Check the following code program drop logittest program define logittest args lnf b1 rho tempvar lng qui { gen double `lng' = ln(invlogit(`b1'*(($ML_y2^(1-`rho')-1)/(1-`rho')))) if $ML_y1==1 replace `lng' = ln(invlogit(-`b1'*(($ML_y2^(1-`rho')-1)/(1-`rho')))) if $ML_y1==0 replace `lnf' = `lng' } end ml model lf logittest (b1:y x=) (rho:), maximize for the rho to be bounded between 0 and 1 you can do the following program define logittest args lnf b1 R tempvar lng rho qui { gen double `rho'=exp(`R')/(1+exp(`R')) gen double `lng' = ln(invlogit(`b1'*(($ML_y2^(1-`rho')-1)/(1-`rho')))) if $ML_y1==1 replace `lng' = ln(invlogit(-`b1'*(($ML_y2^(1-`rho')-1)/(1-`rho')))) if $ML_y1==0 replace `lnf' = `lng' } end ml model lf logittest (y x=) (), maximize init(b) On Wed, Nov 16, 2011 at 7:23 AM, Nick Cox <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> wrote: > Two completely separate points are bundled together here. > > 1.

I need rho to converge to a value that maximises the log likelihood. What I want to do is set a range of possible values for rho (between zero and three specifically) and find a point estimate using ML.

Here it looks as if rho is undefined because you are not feeding the program with enough arguments. > > > * > * For searches and help try: > * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search > * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq > * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ > * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
