In social science research, we often have panel data (multiple units with repeated observations for each unit).  We often wonder which panel data models to use.  Most economists prefer fixed effect models.  Sometimes people use multi-level models.  In this talk, I'd like to talk about multi-level models: what are they, when should we use them, and why.  

Audience: Harvard Faculty, Students, and Staff are all welcome. (Priority is given to HBS faculty, doctoral students, and RAs).
Prerequisites: Familiarity with fundamental statistical concepts is recommended.
