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