Comment from the Stata technical group

Randomized controlled trials are considered the "gold standard" for evaluating the effectiveness of medical interventions. Sometimes, instead of randomizing individuals, it is preferable to randomize groups. Cluster randomized trials (CRTs) are used when intervention must be applied at a group level, when logistics of randomizing individuals are too difficult, and when it protects from contamination between treatment arms.

Cluster Randomised Trials, Second Edition thoroughly describes the aspects of CRT designs and the analysis of data from such trials. After presenting some basic concepts, Hayes and Moulton focus on the clustering aspect of the design. They cover between- and within-cluster variability and correlation, advantages and disadvantages of clustering, how to choose clusters, and other related topics. Middle chapters deal with matching, stratification, randomization procedures, sample-size calculations, and alternative designs. The authors then focus on statistical analyses such as calculations of rate differences and rate ratios, t-tests for means, nonparametric tests of equality between treatment groups, Cox regression, logistic regression, ordinal logistic regression, Poisson regression, GEE, and mixed-effects models. The authors close with miscellaneous topics including the ethical considerations of randomization, establishing stopping rules, and how to report and interpret results.

All analyses are performed in Stata, and the data used are freely available, making the analyses easy to reproduce.
