Dear Statalisters,

I have a very simple 2x2 table Treatment (A or B) versus Recovered (Yes or No).. I would like to test the dependence in the table using a chi square test. However, the observations are not independent but clustered: a multilevel design with patients clustered in approximately twenty "treatment sites".

My question is, in order to take the clustering into account, do I need to use a technique like random coefficient logistic regression? This seems like heavy machinery to solve a simple problem with only a minor complication?

Kind regards,
Adriaan Hoogendoorn
