Error in Realcom

Post by chadlstanley »

Hi all,

apologies but I am new to this software and had encountered a series of errors.

I'm trying to conduct multiple imputations using Realcom and followed the instructions by Goldstein, H (2014).

After successfully loading saved imputation specification in MLwiN (attached), I encountered a series of errors when running it in realcom(attached).

I followed the troubleshoot instructions laid out here in this forum thread viewtopic.php?f=4&t=777 but the error persists.

Can anyone kindly point out what is causing the errors?

Thank you

Have you tried running this with fewer responses? You don't say how many rows you have in your data, or number of categories in each response but it may be that there isn't enough data to support this model.
