New statistical methods for analysing social structures: an introduction to multilevel models
- British Educational Research Journal, 13, 63-71
Computational procedures are described for the efficient estimation of the fixed and random parameters in multilevel random coefficient linear models. The estimation procedure is based on iterative generalised least squares. A number of special cases are described and the procedure is implemented within a general purpose statistical package.
