Off the top of my head I'd say Stata would be able to do what you want,
but for specialized multilevel problems you may also want to check out

surveydata

Hello stata users,

I am wrestling with some analytic issues around some survey data. I am
using the data to perform (2-level) multilevel analyses.  In so doing, I
need to account for the complex survey design (i.e. use "svy" commands)
and use the subpop command to look at specific subpopulations. I also
need to dealing with the multiply imputed income data, (reconciling the
5 distinct iterations of imputed data) all in a program that can perform
multilevel logistic analyses.

I've encountered a good bit of difficulty identifying one program that
can do it all (or even two programs that can do it all and relate to one
another!)  I think Stata can do this, but I am new to Stata, so I am not
positive. Does anyone have any inclinations about how what statistical
program is best to deal with these issues? 
Can anyone recommend a book on stata programming that will help me learn
how to do this (assuming stata is the best fit).


Any advice would be greatly appreciated. By the way, thanks again for
your help with my other question for another analysis.

Sincerely,

Malinda Kennedy
