Trying to get a multivariate ordinal ACE script going with different numbers of thresholds in each variable.
The script is running now, and attached below (self contained: pulls data from a url).
it gives the error
The model does not satisfy the first-order optimality conditions to the required accuracy, and no improved point for the merit function could be found during the final linesearch (Mx status RED)
I am not sure what we are supposed to be doing in threshold matrices with cells that are not expected to be used: I have just left them determined to be greater than the preceeding thresholds, and hoping htey don't mind not being used. But are they supposed to be set NA?
