Dear Sebastian and Anders,

Thank you for your answer. I have the book you mentioned.

To give you more information. My data is cross-sectional. I am planning in
the future, to conducted some multilevel (2 levels) analysis.

Right now, I am planning to conduct "contextual analysis", something like
that:

Self-rated health ( 3 categories) = x1 + x2 + x3 + x4 + x5

Where, for example,

x1 = age of the participant

x2 = sex of the participant

x3 = individual income

x4 = Average income for the Census tract i

x5 = ratio male:female, census tract i

Actually, what I will be doing is to append characteristics of the groups to
which individuals belong to an individual level analysis.

As I wrote in the previous e-mail, I am looking for some Stata routine that
are able to deal with what some authors report as " the residual correlation
between outcomes within groups that may persist after accounting for
individual-level and group-level variables included in the analysis" (For
example: Kawachi I, Berkman L. Neighborhood and health. Chapter 3: The
examination of neighborhood effects on health: conceptual and methodological
issues related to the presence of multiple levels of organization. Oxford
University Press,. 2003).

If you could direct me to any chapter in the Rabe-Hesketh and Skrondal book
would be super !

Thanks in advance,

Fernando A Proietti
