This book unifies and extends latent variable models, including multilevel or generalized linear mixed models, longitudinal or panel models, item response or factor models, latent class or finite

* Examples use only SAS sofware. The Singer & Willett ALDA website hosted by UCLA shows code for SAS, R, Stata
. These applications are enhanced by real-world data sets and software programs in SAS and Stata.
This book is an excelent complement to panel data textbooks (such as Arellano's and Balthagi
>This book covers how to fit mixed models (multilevel models, hierarchical models, clustered data) using several popular software packages (R, SAS, Stata, and more). One strength of the text is that it uses
the dependencies in the data into account must then be used, e.g., when observations at time one and time two are compared in longitudinal studies. At present, researchers almost automatically turn to multi-level
people since it uses examples of dated programs that nobody uses anymore in social sciences(maybe except SAS), (2) there is no mention of STATA, the easiest and one of the most powerful programs to use
for the research question to be addressed. To facilitate application, the book also offers practical guidance and instruction in fitting models using SPSS and Stata, the most popular statistical computer software
is quickly becoming the software of choice for statistical analysis in a variety of fields.

to start learning a new program, I would advise Stata rather than SAS. SAS, in my opinion is code heavy. Yet, this book will be very useful to understand the varied uses of logistic regression (from exact
