Hello everyone,
I was reading the stata 10 "Longitudinal/ panel data" book specifically xtmelogit example page 233 and came across a model with "child", a categorical variable of 3 levels (if I read this correctly) that was coded in the syntax of the fixed effects if the model as "child*" What does the star (*) imply?
Best regards,
Sharif
