Dear Kayo, You need to set this up similarly to the example in the tread I referred to. Note in particular the following: 1) You need to tell -bootstrap- to draw groups of observations relating to individuals with replacement, not single observations. This is done using the -cluster()- option of bootstrap. 2) You need to ensure that proper ID variables are used when running -mixlogit- on the bootstrap samples. This is done using the -idcluster()- and -group()- options of bootstrap. If you read "help bootstrap" carefully so that you understand the meaning of these options and look at the example that I sent you again I think you'll be able to fix the problem yourself.
