Thank you Arthur,

It works well now.
Regarding covariances, i have respectively 10 and 20 levels for year and year of birth. Should I put at least one effect as fixed?

Concerning the correlation structure you mentioned, which could explain a mean of BV different from zero, i'm not sure to understand its origin?

Thank you
