Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

This function fits the multinomial mixed model with two independent random effects
for each category of the response variable: one domain random effect and another independent time and domain random effect (Model 2). The formulation is described in Lopez-Vizcaino et al. (2013).
The fitting algorithm combines the penalized quasi-likelihood method (PQL) for estimating
and predicting the fixed and random effects, respectively, with the residual maximum likelihood method (REML)
for estimating the variance components. This function uses as initial values the output of the function
`initial.values`
