These are my usual settings for BLRT:

k-1starts = 100 20;
lrtstarts 0 0 150 15;
lrtbootstrap 100;


consequently I can understand the warning

WARNING: THE BEST LOGLIKELIHOOD VALUE WAS NOT REPLICATED IN 64 OUT OF 100
BOOTSTRAP DRAWS. THE P-VALUE MAY NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY DUE TO LOCAL
MAXIMA. INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RANDOM STARTS USING THE LRTSTARTS OPTION.

but not the warning

WARNING: THE BEST LOGLIKELIHOOD VALUE WAS NOT REPLICATED IN 18 OUT OF 22
BOOTSTRAP DRAWS. THE P-VALUE MAY NOT BE TRUSTWORTHY DUE TO LOCAL
MAXIMA. INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RANDOM STARTS USING THE LRTSTARTS OPTION.

where does the 22 come from in the latter warning?


many thanks


Jon
