An Introduction to Multilevel Modeling Techniques
Psychology Press – 1999 – 224 pages
Series: Quantitative Methodology Series
This book provides a broad overview of basic multilevel modeling issues and illustrates techniques building analyses around several organizational data sets. Although the focus is primarily on educational and organizational settings, the examples will help the reader discover other applications for these techniques. Two basic classes of multilevel models are developed: multilevel regression models and multilevel models for covariance structures--are used to develop the rationale behind these models and provide an introduction to the design and analysis of research studies using two multilevel analytic techniques--hierarchical linear modeling and structural equation modeling.
"…I recommend this book for individuals who have a firm knowledge of mutilevel SEM techniques, and who understand LISREL programming code."
