Hierarchical Linear Modeling provides a brief, easy-to-read guide to implementing hierarchical linear modeling using three leading software platforms, followed by a set of original "how-to" application articles following a standardized instructional format. The Guide portion consists of five chapters that provide an overview of HLM, discussion of methodological assumptions, and parallel worked model examples in SPSS, SAS, and HLM software. The Applications portion consists of ten contributions in which authors provide step-by-step presentations of how HLM is implemented and reported for introductory to intermediate applications.
"The book covers the three most widely accessible statistical programs for multilevel modeling rather than just focusing on one. . . . An excellent tool for researchers who are beginning to learn multilevel modeling, as well as a great resource for experienced researchers who want to learn a different statistical program for multilevel models." —Debbie L. Hahs-Vaughn, University of Central Florida
