No function convergence for variance components

Postby sixtystrat » Thu Sep 08, 2022 5:41 pm

I am trying to get a mean survival rate using known fate data across a number of years. I tried using the variance components trick to get a mean estimate, but the estimate (beta-hat) seems really high compared with the annual values (S-hat) and I am getting a "no function convergence for upper 95% CI ...". I notice my S-tilde estimates are constant across years which doesn't seem right. Thanks!
