Dear All, I have encountered some problem when I use the asclogit command to estimate a model. In my model, I employed a sub-choice set (10 alternatives: one is the chosen one and the other 9 are randomly selected from the original choice set) for each individual, because the original choice set are large. Therefore, each individual has different choices sets. The alternatives in the choice set are numeric value (ranging from 1 to 300). The example of my data is shown: ID Alt Choice VariableX VariableY 1 20 0 x y 1 2 0 x y 1 36 0 x y 1 79 0 x y 1 31 1 x y 1 200 0 x y 1 9 0 x y 1 96 0 x y 1 112 0 x y 1 131 0 x y 2 3 0 x y 2 99 0 x y 2 41 0 x y 2 57 0 x y 2 79 0 x y 2 32 0 x y 2 1 0 x y 2 123 0 x y 2 62 0 x y 2 57 1 x y VariableX indicates the variables related to the individual, such as (gender, age), while VariableY indicates the variables ascciated with the alternative. The x, y value in the two columns just a represtation, doesn't mean anything, However, when I use asclogit to estimate my model.the error comes up "alternative has replicate levels for one or more cases; this is not allowed". The command is:asclogit choice VariableY, case(id) alternatives(alt) casevars(VariableX) I checked the alternatives in the choice set for each individual, there is no duplicate in each choice set. I don't know what's wrong. Is there anything wrong with my data or with the command? Could anyone help me out of this?
