```Somsupa,

Are you sure that mlogit is the proper approach for your problem? What is the theory behind "country" as the dependent variable in your model?

Subject: st: mlogit outlier

Dear Statalisters,

I am now running mlogit model that has four

categories. My problem is that my Pseudo R2 is 1 while

my loglihood is -2.676e-13. So I think it should be

some problems such as outlier. I have checked my data

by deleting data that has independent value exceed and

lower than 3time of standard deviation.

However I still face the same problem. could

anyone suggest me what I will do or how I will check

outlier in mlogit model.

The following is my model estimation.

Thank you very much.
