Project Details

Description

This project extended existing work on multilevel modelling in three main areas:

1. The project continued to develop methodological tools for the analysis of complex social data; as increasingly sophisticated methodology was developed in this area it was apparent that further work is necessary to properly model the complexity of data from social systems.
2. The project built on the existing MLwiN software with its innovative graphical interface in order to make it accessible to users in ways which mirror their own understandings of their data and help them to gain further insights into data structures.
3. The project developed a range of dissemination and training materials, largely using the internet to raise awareness and understanding in the social science community and outside.
