Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models

  title={Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models},
  author={Andrew Gelman and Yu-Sung Su},
Data Analysis Using Regression and Multilevel/Hierarchical Models is a comprehensive manual for the applied researcher who wants to perform data analysis using linear and nonlinear regression and multilevel models. The book introduces a wide variety of models, whilst at the same time instructing the reader in how to fit these models using available software packages. The book illustrates the concepts by working through scores of real data examples that have arisen from the authors' own applied… Expand
Multilevel Regression and Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling
This chapter treats the multilevel regression model, which is a direct extension of single-level multiple regression, andMultilevel structural equation models, which includes multileVEL path and factor analysis, as well as recent extensions to non-normal data. Expand
Multilevel modeling for longitudinal data: concepts and applications
Understanding how nested data structures and data with repeated measures work enables researchers and managers to define several types of constructs from which multilevel models can be used. Expand
An Introduction to Multi-Level Models (Using Stata)
Multilevel models not only provide a means to correctly estimate causal models when data is hierarchically clustered, but also provide more direct ways to investigate the effects of different levels themselves on the causal process. Expand
Multilevel models for continuous outcomes
Multilevel models (mixed-effect models or hierarchical linear models) are now a standard approach to analysing clustered and longitudinal data in the social, behavioural and medical sciences. ThisExpand
Inequality Constrained Multilevel Models
Multilevel or hierarchical data structures can occur in many areas of research, including economics, psychology, sociology, agriculture, medicine, and public health. Over the last 25 years, there hasExpand
Analysis of Interactions and Nonlinear Effects with Missing Data: A Factored Regression Modeling Approach Using Maximum Likelihood Estimation
This article introduces a factored regression modeling approach for estimating regression models with missing data that is based on maximum likelihood estimation, developed the R package mdmb, which facilitates a user-friendly application of this approach, and presents a real-data example that illustrates the flexibility of the software.

Multilevel multiple imputation: A review and evaluation of joint modeling and chained equations imputation.
This paper describes multilevel imputation strategies and evaluates their performance in a variety of common analysis models, and derives 4 major conclusions: joint modeling and chained equations imputation are appropriate for random intercept analyses, the joint model is superior for analyses that posit different within- and between-cluster associations, and a latent variable formulation for categorical variables is quite effective.

A Framework of R-Squared Measures for Single-Level and Multilevel Regression Mixture Models
This article describes 11 R-squared measures that are distinguished based on what the researcher chooses to consider as outcome variance and what sources the researcher choose to contribute to predicted variance and demonstrates how these R-Squared measures can be decomposed in novel ways into substantively meaningful sources of explained variance.

On Model-Selection and Applications of Multilevel Models in Survey and Causal Inference
On Model-Selection and Applications of Multilevel Models in Survey and Causal Inference Wei Wang This thesis includes three parts. The overarching theme is how to analyze multilevel structuredExpand
Multilevel regression and poststratification in Stata
Sometimes social scientists are interested in determining whether, and to what extent, the distribution of a given variable of interest Y varies across the categories of a second variable D. When theExpand
