Introducing Multilevel Modeling

Introducing Multilevel Modeling

© 1998 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Authors Ita G. G. Kreft and Jan de Leeuw have provided the first accessible and practical guide to using multilevel models in social research. Multilevel approaches are becoming increasingly important in social, behavioral, and educational research and it is clear from recent developments that such models are seen as more realisticùand potentially more revealingùthan ordinary regression models. While other books describe these multilevel models in considerable detail none focus on the practical issues and potential problems of doing multilevel analyses that are covered in Introducing Multilevel Modeling. The authorsÆ approach is user-oriented, keeping formal mathematics and statistics to a minimum. Other key features include the use of worked examples using real data sets, analyzed using the leading computer package for multilevel modeling.

`This book offers an introduction to multilevel modelling that is both clear and accessible. For this reason I strongly recommend it to anyone new to the subject.... I particularly liked the non-directive feel to the book, which leaves the reader clear that there are some issues about which they will have to make up their own mind based on the evidence presented.' - British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology

`If you teach statistics to students with little patience for Greek letters and formulas and who do not have a matrix algebra and mathematical statistics background, I recommend that you use Introducing Multilevel Modeling. - Journal of the American Statistical Association

good book, lots of explainations, but very specialised subject.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
