Dear all, 

    Do you know if any reference has compared the use of HLMand Stata for multilevel modeling? I have been using HLM software for
multilevel analysis, but it seems to me that Stata has more functions than HLM (e.g., calculating predicted probability). I wonder what are
the advantages and disadvantages of using HLM compared with Stata in multilevel modeling? 

    In addition, one of my studies will utilize discrete-time multilevel analysis method (a combination of survival analysis and multilevel modeling), so how do these two software compare in terms of accommodating this analytic method? I will consider earning to use Stata for such an analysis if Stata is good for this purpose. 

    Any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated. Thank you very much!!
