Spurious Aggregation and the Units of Analysis.
Poynor, Hugh
The degree to which the chosen units of analysis are likely to produce spurious findings in staged combinations of multiple linear regression procedures are examined. The effects of grouping variables (e.g., classroom, school, and school district) on Procedures such as Coleman's semipartial regression and Mayeske's commonalities, in light of hypothetical sample homogeneity and heterogeneity are also illustrated. The utility of including grouping variables in the regression models and alternatives such as collecting within-groups regression results in lieu of between-group methods are also considered.
