Hi,
In a multilevel model, "%WITHIN%" AND "%BETWEEN%" sections appear before "MODEL CONSTRAINTS". If a new parameter is specified in "MODEL CONSTRAINT", how can I make it a between level effect?

In the example below, (L1_0,L1_11,L2_11) are the actual parameters to be estimated. For some modeling reasons, they can't appear directly in the MODEL section, but have to be reparameterized as a function of some other parameters in the model. If I want some parameters, say L1_11 and L2_11, to vary between clusters, how do I do that?

MODEL
%WITHIN%
%c#1%
[x1$1] (t1_1);
[x2$1] (t1_2);
...

%BETWEEN%

MODEL CONSTRAINT:
NEW(L1_0 L1_11 L2_11);
t1_1=L1_0+L1_11;
t1_2=L1_0+L2_11;

You would need to use between parameters to define new between parameters.
