Dear Statalist,

A student of mine is working with a type of data with which I have no experience. The key feature of the data is that the unit of observation/analysis is multi-level, with some observations measured at the level of specific neighborhoods, others at a region larger than a neighborhood, and some at the whole city (in this case Baghdad). That is, the same variables are measured over different units.

Ordinarily when I get close to this type of data, I start moving in the other direction without delay. But I know vaguely of the existence of multi-level techniques, and I thought I'd ask you all for where in Stata I should be looking to start finding out about how and whether to do this type of analysis. Thanks for your help,

Richard
