MCMC and weights for a multilevel logistic regression

Post by tjsduq64 »

Hello,

A document on the website (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/software/s ... ights.html) called "Weights in MLwiN" by Rebecca Pillinger states that MLwin cannot use weights in an MCMC analysis. This document was written in 2011. Is this still the case?

I need to fit a multilevel logistic regression with weights. Having a binary outcome leads me to use MCMC but MlwiN can't incorporate weights for MCMC. Does this mean that I need to use another software?

Thanks,

Sun

Yes, this is still true. If you need weights then you would either have to use IGLS or find another package that can run your model.
