A Stata .do file is available here to replicate the results in this paper. You will need Stata, the original data file from ICPSR, and Excel. The estimates for the linear mixed models that are estimated in Stata are close to those provided in the paper; to get exact results, you also need SAS (code provided in the .do file). Also, an Excel workbook that computes the estimates of Graded Expectation States is available here.
