I'm new to Multilevel modeling and currently I been working on a business project and its data is related to multilevel modeling. I know a lot of things about how to approach this problem, but I will do my reasoning so you can tell me if it is ok or wrong. So I need a mind that know this type of...
2. ### Reporting Dummy Variables and Determining Significance

Hi all, I was just wondering, how does a person determine the significance of a categorical variable in a hierarchical regression model if one dummy variable is significant and the other is non-significant? So basically, the categorical variable (X) I am examining has three levels, so...
3. ### Regression with summated scale help

Hi all, I am having struggles with computing a (hierarchical) regression analysis for my data, and i have a feeling this is due to my variables. I have a feeling the problem is with my dependent variable - as it is basically a sum of the three categories per respondent. Is there any way that i...
4. ### Notation of Variance of Residuals in Multilevel Modeling

I am having some trouble to understand the notation of variance of residuals in multilevel modeling . In this paper "Sufficient Sample Sizes for Multilevel Modeling" , in p.87 below equation (3) , they mentioned " the variance of residual errors u_{0j} and u_{1j} is specified as...
5. ### Hierarchical regression in SPSS (how to enter interactions when you have a quadratic)

Hello there! I want to confirm if I am entering my variables in the proper way in SPSS for multiple regression. I have four variables: 1) student gender (dummy); 2) student gender proportionality (continuous); 3) faculty gender (dummy); and 4) student gender proportionality SQUARED...
6. ### Standard or Hierarchical Regression?

I would like to predict creativity (DV) through involvement (IV), after controlling for team size and gender. Questions 1) Do I use hierarchical multiple regression or a standard multiple regression model? 2) A standard model in which all predictors are entered simultaneously, would not...
7. ### Variance of parts equal to variance of whole?

Good morning, I ran a hierarchical regression to test if variables A and B (established in the literature) are mediated by variable C (my research question) when predicting overall performance in a university unit. Block 1 was variables A and B using enter method. Block 2 included variable C...

Hi, I've just started by statistical analysis stage and I've had some strange outputs I was hoping someone could help me with. Two personality measures were entered into a hierarchical regression model and both were found to be significant predictors of heart rate with: N (β = 2.15, p =...
9. ### Hierarchical Regression Analysis - is this the correct technique

I am proposing a study to find out whether cognitive restraint, disinhibition and hunger predict weight gain in pregnancy. However, I know from previous research that this effect differs depending on BMI category. Am I correct in saying I could use a hierarchical regression analysis, where...
10. ### significant variable within a non-significant model/block in hierarchical regression

Greetings. I'm conducting a hierarchical (aka sequential) regression analysis with four blocks of variables. Block 1 consists of 5 covariates. Sex is one of these covariates, with the following breakdown: males (n = 213), females (15). Block 1 is not significant (R square = .04), though the...
11. ### multiple imputation and nested/hierarchical regression

Can anyone enlighten me as to how I can conduct a nested/sequential/hierarchical regression using multiply imputed datasets in R or Stata? In Stata, I tried using nestreg but received an error message stating that was not possible. Many thanks for the help.
12. ### hierarchical regression with different DV for each block?

Greetings. I'm trying to figure out how to do a hierarchical regression whereby the DV regressed on block 1 becomes the IV in block 2, which then has a different DV. That DV then becomes the IV in block 3, at which point the final DV is in place. It'd look something like this: Block 1...
13. ### Confusion over the F-ratio in a hierarchical multiple regression

Hey all, I'm not used to work with multiple regression analysis, so I would be glad if anyone could help me interpreting this result: I performed a hierarchical multiple regression in SPSS (forced entry) in two Blocks to predict to variable SM: Block 1: Predictors: IQ, AGE Block 2...
14. ### Hierarchical regression with partially nested variables

I would like to do a logistic regression of vaccination coverage of, for example, HPV. Let's assume that we have 50 states (S). 30 states have an urban part and a country part (urbanity variable U). The other 20 have only a country area. 10 of the states have population areas where individuals...
