Thanks Maarten. Just a small clarification: -mixlogit- allows for multinomial outcomes while -xtmelogit- is for binary outcomes only so the two are not substitutes in general. Another difference is that -mixlogit- uses simulation to approximate the likelihood function, while -xtmelogit- uses quadrature. For more information about -mixlogit- see <http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0133>. I disagree when it comes to marginal effects: I personally find them much easier to interpret than odds-ratios. In the end the choice will depend on your discipline and personal preference. Arne
