prefer the use of "a pooling factor" in multilevel models to indicate the the degree to which elements are pooled together. They use the same formula for the residual intraclass coefficient that is used for the shrinkage factor on population distribution a, but refer to 1-B as the pooling factor when B = 1 - [ sigma^2/(sigma^2 + sigma_y^2/n_j)] for them, a_j (multilevel) = B mu_a + (1-B) ybar_j where ybar_j = avg of the y's within each group j mu_a = average of the population B = 0 when there is no pooling a_j=ybar_j = 1 when there is complete pooling a_j = mu_a - Hope this helps.
