Thanks Henrik. I will just be more patient then 🙂
I was just concerned because I am running some lmers on the same dataset (different response variables) with mixed using method=”PB” and they only take a few minutes to run, compared with the hours in which the glmer had not completed its calculations. The dataset is not that big, only 144 samples.
Thank you very much for your help and explanations!CMacParticipant
Whoops, sorry, whilst creating the example data I identified the cause of the ‘type builtin not subsettable’ was related to my rookie mistake naming my dataframe ‘exp’ (doh!).
However things still don’t seem right: the mixed function now runs, but is taking an extremely long time to run compared with glmer, and hasn’t completed calculating P-values after several hours on my full dataset. It also produces a lot of non-convergence warnings.
Here’s an example data subset and code. The mixed function does eventually complete calculations on this data, but still comes up with the non-convergence warnings. It would be great if you could let me know if it’s working as expected or not. I hope I haven’t done anything else silly (I have checked everything I can think of). Thanks very much!!
