# dclike.panel {panel}

A function to compute the value of the log likelihood for a given set of
panel data and a given value of the parameters.

### Description

A fortran program is called to compute the value of the log likelihood.

### Usage

dclike.panel(indata, ainv, amat, evalues, ncov, nstage)

### Arguments

- indata
- indata is a list with one entry for each individual. Each entry is a structure with the components: time: the inspection times for that individual stage: the stage the individual is in at each inspection times cov: the value of the covariate for that individual at the inspection time len: the number of inspections for that individual
- ainv
- The inverse of the intensity matrix.
- amat
- The intensity matrix.
- evalues
- The eigenvalues.
- ncov
- The number of levels the covariate comes at.
- nstage
- nstage is the number of stages in the Markov model.

### Values

The value of the log likelihood is returned.

### Side Effects
