Thanks to Kit Baum a new update of the -fmlogit- package is now
available from SSC. The predict program for -fmlogit- somehow got
corrupted, and this has been fixed.

-fmlogit- fits by quasi maximum likelihood a fractional multinomial
logit model. It models a set of dependent variables that each must
range between 0 and 1 and must always, for each observation, add up to
1: for example, they may be proportions. It is a multivariate
generalization of the fractional logit model proposed by Papke and
Wooldridge (1996)

I hope some of you will find this package useful,
Maarten

for Fractional Response Variables with an Application to 401(k) Plan
