Is there a possibility to specify a two of three level hierarchical model
in lme?
To be more specific, I have to analyse a dataset that consists of
information on 20 schools, between 3 and 15 classes per school and 10 to 30
pupils in each class.
Apart from the fixed effects I want to estimate the variance components of
of schools and classes.
