Organisation profile

The Centre for Multilevel Modelling (CMM) is a research centre based at the University of Bristol. Our researchers are drawn from the School of Education, Bristol Veterinary School and School of Geographical Sciences. We collaborate with a range of researchers working with multilevel models.

Multilevel Modelling is one of the modern techniques used in quantitative social science research for modelling data with complex hierarchical structures. The Multilevel Modelling research theme focuses on producing new statistical methods for tackling research questions, developing new software for implementing this methodology and disseminating these techniques to the national and international social science community.
