Is it possible to request more than three decimal places for the parameter estimates? I have a very small effect which is significant but estimated as 0.000. I probably need the fourth decimal place.

Thank you in advance.

You can save the results using the RESULTS option of the SAVEDATA command. Results are saved with more decimals.

I have been trying to obtain extra decimal places for my parameter estimates as follows:

savedata:
format is f10.5;
file is data.dat;
estimates are estimates.dat;

Although the data is saved to 5 decimal places the parameter estimates are only saved to 3 decimal places. Is there a way round this?

Use the RESULTS option not the ESTIMATES option.
