Dear Prof Pfeifer,
I doing an estimation on a model with command “option-.debug=1” to check for the error with the code. The message is as follows:
Error in computing likelihood for initial parameter values
ESTIMATION_CHECKS: There was an error in computing the likelihood for initial parameter values.
ESTIMATION_CHECKS: If this is not a problem with the setting of options (check the error message below),
ESTIMATION_CHECKS: you should try using the calibrated version of the model as starting values. To do
ESTIMATION_CHECKS: this, add an empty estimated_params_init-block with use_calibration option immediately before the estimation
ESTIMATION_CHECKS: command (and after the estimated_params-block so that it does not get overwritten):
I understood that I need to specify the command estimated_params_init. I do not understand how to specify this command in my code. I’ve just entered the command with option use calibration before and after the command estimation but I did not get any outcome.
I will appreciate if you could provide me with an insight on the usage of the command to perform the estimation.
