It seems that -quickicc- (from SSC) does *not* calculate the ICC of random slope models. But you can use -xtmrho- (from SSC), instead - although -xtmrho- does not calculate the standard error.

Stata example (runable from do-file window):

* --------------------------------------------
cap which quickicc
if _rc ssc install quickicc

cap which xtmrho
if _rc ssc install xtmrho

webuse nlswork
xtmixed ln_wage grade age c.age#c.age ttl_exp ///
        tenure c.tenure#c.tenure || idcode: tenure
* --------------------------------------------

BTW: Note that in the first "official" example for -xtmixed- (see -h xtmixed-) the variables ln_wage and idcode are abbreviated to ln_w and id which - depending on your varabbrev setting (see -h set_varabbrev-) might give you an error message if you try to run it (this should be corrected!).

As a final note on -iccvar-: please be aware that the command only estimates
the ICC for random intercept models, up to 4 levels. If you have a random
intercept and random slope model, you should use -quickicc-, also by Eric C
