Re: Four-level CCM, variance components

You can find examples that replicate the MLwiN manuals using runmlwin at https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/ ... /examples/. I would suggest looking at the example for Chapter 15 of the MCMC guide, as this covers setting up cross-classified models.

Re: Worksheet reserved columns for bootstrapping

If you open the MLwiN help file and search for "reserved" you will find a topic named "Reserved groups, columns and boxes" which should provide you with a list of reserved columns. Is this the source that you found already?

Re: '...' invalid name Error.

Would you be able to provide any details as to what the problem with the command prompted was, for the benefit of anyone else who might have the same problem in future?

Re: '...' invalid name Error.

The shell command ought to be doing the same as running the file directly, so that's odd. Could you try running:

Code: Select all

shell cmd /k "C:\Program Files (x86)\MLwiN trial\i386\mlwin.exe"
as this should leave the blue window afterwards in case there are any useful messages there.

Re: '...' invalid name Error.

Can you confirm that running MLwiN directly from Windows (i.e. running C:\Program Files (x86)\MLwiN trial\i386\mlwin.exe) works for you?

Running the following may provide a more informative error message as to why runmlwin_verinfo is failing: program runmlwin_getversion, plugin scalar ver1 = . scalar ver2 = . scalar ver3 = . scalar ver4 = . plugin call runmlwin_getversion, "C:\Program Files (x86)\MLwiN trial\i386\mlwin.exe" ver1 ver2...

There are two problems occurring here: It is having trouble extracting the version number from your copy of MLwiN. Could you try running the following?: runmlwin_verinfo C:\Program Files (x86)\MLwiN trial\i386\mlwin.exe It should display the version associated with this file. If it doesn't you need ...

Re: '...' invalid name Error.

Can you run the Stata command:

Code: Select all

set trace on
prior to running code that exhibits this problem, and then provide the output?

Re: Fit statistics for binomial models

A Wald test will often be used for these kind of model (see chapter 9 of the MLwiN manual examples on https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/r2mlwin/examples/ ). As MLwiN fits discrete models in (R)IGLS using quasi-likelihood it is usually advised to fit them using MCMC, at least for the final model...
