Readers are brought to either the multilevel regression version and multilevel structural models.
Highlights of the second one version include:
- Two new chapters―one on multilevel types for ordinal and count number information (Ch. 7) and one other on multilevel survival research (Ch. 8).
- Thoroughly up-to-date chapters on multilevel structural equation modeling that replicate the large technical growth of the previous couple of years.
- The addition of a few less complicated examples to aid the beginner, while the extra complicated examples that mix a couple of challenge were retained.
- A new part on multivariate meta-analysis (Ch. 11).
- Expanded discussions of covariance constructions throughout time and interpreting longitudinal information the place no development is expected.
