I am trying to run an RUM consistent nested logit model of surburban
commuter choice in Montreal, Canada.

There are six choices available (peak solo automobile, peak ridesharing,
peak public transit, offpeak solo automobile, offpeak ridesharing and
offpeak public transit).

I have been able to get nlogitrum to work with one nest, but am having
trouble getting the syntax correct to run two nests.

The nested structure I would like to run is:

First level: public (public transit - coded as 3 and 6) vs. non-public
modes (automobile (1,4) and ridesharing (2,5)).

Second level: traveling alone (solo (peak and offpeak) automobile) vs.
not alone (ridesharing (peak and offpeak)).

The problem is that when I run the model, it ends with a "conformability
error" r(503).

I think that I have not got the syntax right for nlogitgen, but can't
seem to figure it out.

Below is the syntax I have used along with the some of the output. As
can be seen, the tree structure seems not to want to include the pub
variables of the 'public' level nest.

If anybody has any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong, I would
be most appreciative.

Thanks in advance,

nlogitgen public=_j(pub: 3|6, nonp: 1|2|4|5);
nlogitgen alein=_j(alone: 1|4, notalone: 2|5);

. nlogitrum choice publict ... if shride==0 & fe==0, group(newid)
nests(_j alein public);

tree structure specified for the nested logit model

        top --> bottom

      public         alein            _j
        nonp         alone             1
                  notalone             2
note: 11 groups (66 obs) dropped due to no positive outcome
      or multiple positive outcomes per group
note: tmeng dropped due to collinearity
conformability error
