st: Hausman IIA test after asclogit in Stata12 |

Dear Stata-listers. I need to run the Hausman IIA test after obtaining the results from the "asclogit" command. Any help with respect to commands that could be followed for the Hausman test would greatly help me clear this one last hurdle in proving that my choice model has independent alternatives, and is valid. I have followed the threads on the same topic prior to this - but didn't find appropriate solutions for the same. On the outset I apologize if I'm reposting on the same topic, but I am facing similar issues as the previous 2 posts on the same topic. (dated 2011 & 2010) have had. Is there any user generated program that could run the Hausman IIA after asclogit. I am aware of similar commands after xtreg, mlogit, and so on...but not in the context of IIA based testing. The description of my runs is given below: my main asclogit commands are as follows: 1. eststo est12:asclogit achoice ratio_simulcast buyer_distance supply meanPriceValueRatio pctsold price_variability interactac , case(caseid) alt(ac) 2. eststo est13:asclogit achoice ratio_simulcast buyer_distance supply meanPriceValueRatio pctsold price_variability interactac if ac != 3, case(caseid) alt(ac) The variables descriptions & data types are as follows: achoice - is the choice variable 1 or 0, ratio_simulcast - is a real number between 0 - 1, , buyer_distance - a real number between 0 & 4000, supply - number between 1 & 10000 , meanPriceValueRatio - a real number between 0 & 2, pctsold - number between 0 & 1, price_variability - between 1 & 7000 , interactac - real number between 0 & 65000: There are 85 alternatives of the variable ac, each indicated by a unique number between 1 & 85 in the model. There are approximately 1.25 M total observations with about 0.105 cases in the asclogit model - each case indicated by a caseid. I tried the I) hausman test and II) the suest test to obtain the desired results for testing IIA, but couldn't get past the following errors. I) I tried using hausman est12 est13 -but got the error hausman est12 est14 Note: the rank of the differenced variance matrix (4) does not equal the number of coefficients being tested (7); be sure this is what you expect, or there may be problems computing the test. Examine the output of your estimators for anything unexpected and possibly consider scaling your variables so that the coefficients are on a similar scale. ---- Coefficients ---- | (b) (B) (b-B) sqrt(diag(V_b-V_B)) | est12 est14 Difference S.E. -------------+---------------------------------------------------------------- ratio_simu~t | -.360078 -.3472927 -.0127852 . buyer_dist~e | -.0019122 -.0023039 .0003917 . supply | .0017486 .0017187 .0000299 . meanPriceV~o | 4.13e-08 4.18e-08 -5.90e-10 1.18e-08 pctsold | -1.925903 -1.978081 .0521788 . price_vari~y | 1.38e-08 -2.32e-08 3.69e-08 . interactac | -.0000571 -.0000186 -.0000385 . ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ b = consistent under Ho and Ha; obtained from asclogit B = inconsistent under Ha, efficient under Ho; obtained from asclogit Test: Ho: difference in coefficients not systematic chi2(4) = (b-B)'[(V_b-V_B)^(-1)](b-B) = -1406.95 chi2<0 ==> model fitted on these data fails to meet the asymptotic assumptions of the Hausman test; see suest for a generalized test . II) Then I tried suest - The number of score variables does not match number of equations in model est12 I didn't get a solution for either I) or II) above. Any help would be greatly appreciated. what can I do to correct these errors, Thanks in advance.
