Can you identify any literature that defines covariance for ordinal (graded) responses? I don't usually align myself with "level of measurement" arguments, but I would be surprised if the models you think you want are even defined in the literature. I'd be happy for anyone to expose my enormous ignorance on this detail. 

(I am confident that Stata is correctly so spelled, but that of course is a detail.)

    I-emailed statalist about a month back regarding longitudinal ordinal regression in STATA (as I couldn't find anything such as `xtologit').

     A few people recommended that I should use GLLAMM or ologit (with `cluster id' option). But there is no option to specify the type of covariance structure (unstructured, ar1 etc.) on either of them if I am not wrong. I think the cluster(id) option for ologit (or i(id) for GLLAMM) are just nesting the observations by their respective ids.

    I was wondering if anyone can point out some other models which could take care of this problem (specifying covariance structure in a longitudinal OLR)?
