Dear Statalisters,

I am pleased to announce runmlwin, a new command to run the fast and
powerful MLwiN multilevel modelling software from within Stata.

runmlwin fits the same types of models as xtmixed, xtmelogit,
xtempoisson and gllamm.

runmlwin allows you to seamless access the following features of MLwiN:

(1) Estimation of multilevel models for continuous, binary, count,
ordered categorical and unordered categorical data;
(2) Fast estimation via IGLS (gives maximum likelihood estimates) and
Bayesian methods (MCMC);
(3) Estimation of multilevel models for cross-classified and multiple
membership nonhierarchical data structures;
(4) Estimation of multilevel multivariate response models, multilevel
spatial models, multilevel measurement error models and multilevel
multiple imputation models.

runmlwin returns all models results to Stata at which point you can
make use of all of Stata's standard post-estimation and graphing
commands.

runmlwin requires Stata version 9 or higher and MLwiN version 2.24 or
higher. A 30-day trial version of MLwiN is available to all.

MLwiN is completely free to UK academics thanks to the UK Economic and
Social Research Council (ESRC).

You can install runmlwin from within Stata by simply typing:

        ssc install runmlwin, replace

Full details, including comprehensive documentation, a wide range of
runmlwin examples and an active runmlwin user forum are available at
the runmlwin website:

I hope you find runmlwin useful.

Best wishes

George
