I've got a non-linear model that I've been applying to some data of repeated binary outcomes. I have data for multiple years, and I'd like to add random effects (by year) for two of my parameters. Looking at the
lme4 package in R, it seems that it supports non-Gaussian error structure and nonlinear models, but not simultaneously. Is there a way around this, or another package I could be using? I hear ADMB has a steep learning curve, so I'd prefer not to tackle that.
Without random effects, my model is quite simple--only 4 parameters and I've been able to fit it using a formula call to the
mle2 function from the
