The Structural Analysis of Hierarchial Data.
Wisenbaker, Joseph M.; Schmidt, William H.
The problems inherent in analyzing data in which subjects are "nested" within hierarchical units (such as classrooms or schools), and thus are not independent of one another, are addressed through the use of Joreskog's LISREL model for analyzing covariance matrices. A solution to the problem is proposed and illustrated using data from the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972. (JKS)
