I can estimate either growth curve readilly using xtmepoisson, but I'm interested in estimating the relationship between them. That is, as secd goes up, does negative behavior go down. I would like to estimate them simultaneously as you can do with Mplus. I also have this data clustered by school. So I have 8 waves of data for each child and 15 schools. I could use Stata's sem to estimate parallel growth curves and see how they are related, but it is restricted to continuous variables. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It seems as if you should be able to fit two parallel growth curves (random intercept and random slope for each of two variables at the child level and the same at the school level) using -xtmepoisson-. What's your Mplus set-up look like? Is it anything like the following? DATA: FILE IS DATA.DAT; VARIABLE: NAMES ARE SCHOOL CHILD SECD1-SECD8 NBEH1-NBEH8; USEVARIABLES ARE SCHOOL SECD1-NBEH8; COUNT ARE SECD1-NBEH8; CLUSTER IS SCHOOL; ANALYSIS: TYPE IS TWOLEVEL; INTEGRATION = 5; MODEL: %WITHIN% iw1 sw1 | SECD1@0 SECD2@1 SECD3@2 SECD4@3 SECD5@4 SECD6@5 SECD7@6 SECD8@7; iw2 sw2 | NBEH1@0 NBEH2@1 NBEH3@2 NBEH4@3 NBEH5@4 NBEH6@5 NBEH7@6 NBEH8@7; %BETWEEN% ib1 sb1 | SECD1@0 SECD2@1 SECD3@2 SECD4@3 SECD5@4 SECD6@5 SECD7@6 SECD8@7; ib2 sb2 | NBEH1@0 NBEH2@1 NBEH3@2 NBEH4@3 NBEH5@4 NBEH6@5 NBEH7@6 NBEH8@7; I don't know if you're intending to fit eight random effects, but if so, then that's bound to be too many for -gllamm-.
