A Mixed Model for Nested Structural Repeated Data Choi, Jae-Sung;
This paper discusses the covariance structures of data collected from an experiment with a nested design structure, where a smaller experimental unit is nested within a larger one. Due to the nonrandomization of repeated measures factors to the nested experimental units, compound symmetry covariance structure is assumed for the analysis of data. Treatments are given as the combinations of the levels of random factors and fixed factors. So, a mixed-effects model is suggested under compound symmetry structure. An example is presented to illustrate the nesting in the experimental units and to show how to get the parameter estimates in the fitted model.
