## Comment from the Stata technical group
The material in the third edition consists of two volumes, a result of the substantial expansion of material from the second edition, and has much to offer readers of the earlier editions. The text has almost doubled in length from the second edition and almost quadrupled in length from the original version to almost 1,000 pages across the two volumes. Fully updated for Stata 12, the book has 5 new chapters and many new exercises and datasets. The two volumes comprise 16 chapters organized into eight parts. Volume I is devoted to continuous Gaussian linear mixed models and has nine chapters organized into four parts. The first part reviews the methods of linear regression. The second part provides in-depth coverage of two-level models, the simplest extensions of a linear regression model. Rabe-Hesketh and Skrondal begin with the comparatively simple random-intercept linear model without covariates, developing the mixed model from principles and thereby familiarizing the reader with terminology, summarizing and relating the widely used estimating strategies, and providing historical perspective. Once the authors have established the mixed-model foundation, they smoothly generalize to random-intercept models with covariates and then to a discussion of the various estimators (between, within, and random-effects). The authors then discuss models with random coefficients. The third part of volume I describes models for longitudinal and panel data, including dynamic models, marginal models (a new chapter), and growth-curve models (a new chapter). The fourth and final part covers models with nested and crossed random effects, including a new chapter describing in more detail higher-level nested models for continuous outcomes. The mixed-model foundation and the in-depth coverage of the mixed-model principles provided in volume I for continuous outcomes make it straightforward to transition to generalized linear mixed models for noncontinuous outcomes, which are described in volume II. Volume II is devoted to generalized linear mixed models for binary, categorical, count, and survival outcomes. The second volume has seven chapters also organized into four parts. The first three parts in volume II cover models for categorical responses, including binary, ordinal, and nominal (a new chapter); models for count data; and models for survival data, including discrete-time and continuous-time (a new chapter) survival responses. The fourth and final part in volume II describes models with nested and crossed-random effects with an emphasis on binary outcomes.
The book has extensive applications of generalized mixed models performed in
Stata. Rabe-Hesketh and Skrondal developed In summary, this book is the most complete, up-to-date depiction of Stata’s capacity for fitting generalized linear mixed models. The authors provide an ideal introduction for Stata users wishing to learn about this powerful data analysis tool. ## Table of contentsView table of contents >> |
