Hi all!

I run logistic regression model with random effiect for binary data by GLIMMIX.

Convergence criterion satisfied and all independent value shows "Estimate"

in Table "Solution for fixed Effects" and "Type III Tests of Fixed Effects".

However, some independent value show blank(".") standard error in

"Solution for fixed Effects" and also in "Type III Tests of Fixed Effects".

Anyone know what kind of situation show this result?

Effect | Estimate | Standard Error | DF | t value | Pr>|t| |

Intercept | 1.6624 | 0.3209 | Infty | 5.18 | <.0001 |

D1009 | -0.03593 | 0.007111 | Infty | -5.05 | <.0001 |

D1011 | -0.00108 | 0.007111 | Infty | -2.67 | 0.0076 |

D1012 | 0.000593 | . | . | . | . |

D1015 | 0.00117 | . | . | . | . |

Your model is a multiple regression with 27 predictor variables.

I would look at

(1) whether there is enough data to to support the estimation of 27 parameters; for example, if your sample size is 20, then this model is overparameterized (having "Infty" df suggests overparameterization), and

(2) whether there is multicollinearity among the 27 predictors

(3) whether you have the correct model for your study design

Hi sld!

Thank you for your reply!

There is enough data (n=400,000)

but I have thought of something about multicollinearity.

I should think about it.

Thank you for your advice!
