Summary: "The writing style is unquestionably a strength of this book particularly when compared to competing books. Without question I would adopt the revised version and recommend it to others. The proposed changes will strengthen an already effective book." - Dick Carpenter, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, USA"Dr. Hox is a master at presenting sophisticated statistical ideas and models in very pragmatic ways' There have been many developments in the area of multilevel structural equation modeling and [Hox's] book is the only multilevel one that covers this important area. Thus, the revised edition will fill an important niche in the multilevel literature .The additional chapters ' make the book more ' appealing. I would definitely use Hox's book.[and] recommend it to my colleagues." - Donald Hedeker, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA"The first edition was heralded for its simplistic yet in-depth coverage of difficult material and the proposed second edition will retain that style and approach. The[book]incorporates many of the latest developments that have emerged over the past few years in the field." - George Marcoulides, University of California ' Riverside, Quantitative Methodology Series Editor.

This practical introduction helps readers apply multilevel techniques to their research. Noted as an accessible introduction, the book also includes advanced extensions, making it useful as both an introduction and as a reference to students, researchers, and methodologists. Basic models and examples are discussed in non-technical terms with an emphasis on understanding the methodological and statistical issues involved in using these models. The estimation and interpretation of multilevel models is demonstrated using realistic examples from various disciplines. For example, readers will find data sets on stress in hospitals, GPA scores, survey responses, street safety, epilepsy, divorce, and sociometric scores, to name a few. The data sets are available on the website in SPSS, HLM, MLwiN, LISREL and/or Mplus files. Readers are introduced to both the multilevel regression model and multilevel structural models.
Highlights of the second edition include:
Ideal for introductory courses on multilevel modeling and/or ones that introduce this topic in some detail taught in a variety of disciplines including: psychology, education, sociology, the health sciences, and business. The advanced extensions also make this a favorite resource for researchers and methodologists in these disciplines. A basic understanding of ANOVA and multiple regression is assumed. The section on multilevel structural equation models assumes a basic understanding of SEM.
