    --> Examples of Papers that Use Multilevel Models


    Example SAS Programs (ascii/text format): Examples from Snijders & Bosker using SAS
    • MLbook.sas. Create SAS data for examples in Chapters 4 and 5.
    • Ch4_examples.sas. Example 2-level analyses from Chapter 4 (random intercept models).
    • Ch5_examples.sas. Example 2-level analyses from Chapter 5 (random intercept and slopes).
    • Ch12_examples.sas. Examples analyses from Chapter 12 (longitudinal data analysis), including creating sas dataset.
  • Examples from Chapter 4 of Kreft & de Leeuw (provided and written by Carol Nickerson):
    • School23.sas. SAS code that creates data set and fits models reported in Kreft & de Leeuw.
    • school23.dat. Raw data file that is used as input to school23.sas.
