    started a topic report var(residual) / melogit vs. xtmixed ?

    report var(residual) / melogit vs. xtmixed ?

    l am working about cross-classified multilevel model

    dependent variable : immigration y/n (binary, immigration : 1, none : 0), level1 : personal variable, level2 : move-out reigon(varlist : depid_), level2: move-in region(varlist : arrid_)

    meqrlogit immigration(binary) || all : R.depid_(move-out region) || arrid_(move-in region):, var

    i use "var" option. but, didn't report the result of variance(residual). what's the problem?

    can i use xtmixed model instead of melogit model in binary dependent variable?

    Also, xtmixed is the old name for mixed. Both fit hierarchical linear models. If you fit one to binary data, that's like fitting a fancier linear probability model. Some people will get nervous if you do that, because we do have logistic regression. LPMs actually work fairly well, though.

    In a logistic model, the residual variance is always pi2/3.
