Re: [R] linear mixed effect model with ordered logit/probit link?

          Have you received a reply to this? I haven't seen one. I just tried several things with RSiteSearch. Searching for "ordered logit" produced 70 hits. One of the first 10 indicate, "The CRAN package MCMCpack has at least ordered probit."

          I haven't used ordered probits or logits or MCMC, but it would seem to me that if MCMCpack has ordered probits, it surely should also be able to handle mixed effects.

          If you would like further assistance from this listserve, I suggest you read the posting guide ( Doing so might increase the chances of obtaining a useful reply quickly, especially if your question includes an extremely simple example in a few lines of R code that someone can copy from your email into R and test a few ideas in a minute or so.
