The program gllamm runs in the statistical package Stata and estimates GLLAMMs (Generalized Linear Latent And Mixed Models) by maximum likelihood (see help gllamm after installation). gllamm maximises the marginal log-likelihood using Stata’s version of the Newton Raphson Algorithm (ml with method d0). In the case of discrete random effects or factors, the marginal log-likelihood is evaluated exactly whereas numerical integration is used for continuous (multivariate) normal random effects or factors. Two methods are available for numerical integration: Quadrature or adaptive quadrature. In both cases it is essential to make sure that a sufficient number of quadrature points has been used by comparing solutions with different numbers quadrature points. In most cases adaptive quadrature will perform better than ordinary quadrature. This is particularly the case if the cluster sizes are large and the responses include (large) counts and/or continuous variables. Even where ordinary quadrature performs well, adaptive quadrature often requires fewer quadrature points making it faster.
