# Edition 1 of the book

In 1996 prof Hox wrote a short book to introduce (graduate) students to multilevel analysis. This book, *Applied Multilevel Analysis*, is available on the publications section of his homepage as a downloadable pdf-file. However, it was slowly becoming outdated, and at some point prof Hox decided to write a new and much expanded version. That book has become *Multilevel Analysis, Techniques and Applications*, published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

For the moment, you can view the contents of the book. There is a copy of the first two chapters if you are interested in a preview. An errata file is also available. Finally, datasets that are mentioned for the examples in the first version of the book are available for SPSS/Windows, SPSS/Portable, EXCEL and in RAW DATA format.
