      2. Open a script window: File|New script
      3. Use a web browser to to open a data file
      4. Cut and paste the data file into the R script window and save it with a suitable name: e.g. police.dat
      5. Open a new script window for commands to read in the data file as an R 'data.frame'
        1. Count the number of non-data lines to skip at the top, then use the command:
          > dd <- read.table( 'police.dat', header = T, skip = 6)
        2. Submit the command with Ctrl-R
  • Gelman and Hill is an excellent recent reference on multilevel models. It is very light on issues that are specific to longitudinal data analysis.
