Hi Joseph,

Thank you very much for the code. However, it seems my gllamm is different from your. The following is the error message.

. margins, at(_Igirl_1=(0 1) age=(0(0.5)2.5))
Warning: cannot perform check for estimable functions.
e(sample) does not identify the estimation sample
r(322);

. margins , at(_Igirl_1 = (0 1) age = (0(0.5)2.5))
Warning: cannot perform check for estimable functions.
e(sample) does not identify the estimation sample
r(322);

I thought I already download everything I can get from gllamm including gllapred, runmlwin, and many others. Please help.

Thanks.

Wensheng

Hi, Please help. How to do post multilevel regression estimation after gllamm? I
tried "margins" command, it seems not work. Please fix it for me. Thanks.

You could try something like that below.

If a variable is not a factor variable (that is, if it is not included in the
model with the i.variable notation*), then it is considered by Stata to be a
continuous variable.  So, despite its being coded 0/1, _I_girl_1 is considered
by Stata to be a continuous variable.

-margins- requires its first arguments to be factor variables--variables that
were in the model as i.variable.  Because _I_girl_1 is a continuous variable and
not a factor variable, you must treat it as a continuous variable when you refer
to it with -margins-.

*-anova- and -manova- are notable exceptions.
