The principal aim of the book is an exposition of methods for the analysis of clustered observations; the secondary one is to provide substantive interest as a measure of uncertainty, quality, equity, or generally, as a summary of differences among experimental or observational units. Anothergoal is to make a balanced presentation of the advantages and limitations of these methodsThe examples used for illustration of methods are not drawn exclusively from the social sciences. Although models are motivated mainly by social science problems, they are applicable in a variety of situations involving (imperfect) replication, such as repeated measurements, repeated experiments,logitudinal analysis, and analysis of covariance structures in general.

Editorial Reviews

"A major strength is the interweaving of rather involvedmethodology with the analysis of interesting real-life applications. . .provides an interesting and concise introduction to much of the literature on random-effects modeling." --Journal of the American Statistical Association
