I am attempting to use the postestimation command "estat icc" after using
xtmixed for a mixed model. However, each of my attempts ends with this

. estat icc
invalid subcommand icc

search for r(321)                                         (manual:  [R]

I am confused by this error since I found the estat icc command in
documentation specific to xtmixed postestimations published by Stata.
Specifically, the documentation says:

estat icc displays the intraclass correlation for pairs of responses at
each nested level of the model. Intraclass correlations are available for
random-intercept models or for random-coefficient models conditional on
random-effects covariates being equal to zero. They are not available
for crossed-effects models or with residual error structures other than
independent structures.

Is there some reason why I would not be able to use estat icc? I am using
Stata 12.

Thank you for your help.
