Adding iterations

Dear everyone, I would like to know whether it'd be possible to add iterations to a MCMC model that has already run through runmlwin. I know this is possible on mlwin but I was wondering if there was any way to do so with runmlwin. So a practical example would be the following: - I run a MCMC model ...

Optimal computer for MLwiN

Dear MLwiN users, I have been using MLwiN to run simultaneous multi-state multilevel discrete event history models (similar to e.g. Steele et al. 2005, Steele et al. 2006). As some of you will know, such models are quite computing intensive and, usually, slow to iterate. As a research group, we are ...

Re: Parallel chains

Thanks for the quick answer. That's what I have been doing so far but I wasn't sure whether I could use mcmc, variables so that's good to know. Do you have any recommendation on how to choose starting values? I'll also look into winbugs and, if I find anything useful, I'll report back on the forum i...

Parallel chains

Hello, I am using MLwiN through runmlwin to run multiprocess models with MCMC estimation. I would like to speed up the estimation process and after considering and reading about several alternatives, I would like to try to run parallel chains. However, I couldn't find any recommendation on how to do...

Re: Average Marginal Effects via runmlwin

Hello George, Thank you for your prompt and detailed answer. Unfortunately (or fortunately thanks to the existence of MLwiN), I am fully using the functionality of MLwiN (MCMC estimation, etc.) so I cannot use STATA as an alternative. Is there any hope that runmlwin will one day be compatible with m...

Average Marginal Effects via runmlwin

Dear everyone, My question is the following: How can I get average marginal effects and theirs standard errors from MLwiN via runmlwin? A previous post on how to get predictions from MLwiN via runmlwin has already been answered. The post is extremely useful to obtain marginal effects at average and/...

Issue with factor variables

Dear all, I included some factor variables in my regression and I keep on receiving an error message. The regression code is the following (simplified version of my actual regression): runmlwin x011 cons c.gtrust_rdev##c.educ_nat , /// level3(s003: cons) level2(x048: cons) level1(id:) /// discrete(d...

Modelling Count Data (example do-file) - mismatch error

I have tried to run the tutorial do-file on count data "12 Modelling Count Data.do" but stata gives me the following error message when I try to run the first model:
type mismatch
r(109);
Any suggestions?

Zero-inflated poisson

I am working on a three-level poisson model in mlwin - since my dependent variable is the number of children (completed fertility) - I would like to use a zero-inflated poisson model but I have not found any examples yet on how to perform such a model in mlwin. Any suggestions would be greatly appre...
