New in HLM 5 for Windows
HLM 5 for Windows is exclusively for use with Windows 95, 98, NT and higher.
New features include:
 Estimating multivariate linear models from incomplete data. This includes unrestricted models, randomeffects models, autocorrelated withinsubject errors, heterogeneous withinsubject variances; multivariate and multilevel models
 Faster, more efficient importing of data from statistical packages
 Highly accurate Laplace approximation to maximum likelihood for binary outcome models (Bernoulli only)
 Generalized estimating equations with robust standard errors
 Multinomial regression for twolevel data
 Comparison of Ordinary Least Squares (with and without robust standard errors) and HLM estimates (with and without robust standard errors) on every analysis
 Ordinal regression for twolevel data
 Latent variable analysis  estimating direct and indirect effects of explanatory variables measured with error (not included with threelevel multivariate)
 Loglinear model for heterogeneous level1 variance (2level program only)
 Automated analysis of multiplyimputed data
Upgrading from previous versions of HLM
 The upgrade price (from version 4 and older) to version 5 of HLM is £Ü336,000. A revised
manual, illustrating the use of the new features in HLM 5, is included.
 The new manual may also be purchased separately at £Ü72,000 a copy.
 Note that HLM 5 can not be used with Windows 3.1, but only with Windows 95,98, 2000

Download a free student version of HLM 5
The student edition of HLM 5 contains the following:
 All the examples distributed with the full HLM 5 version. These examples may be run
with the student edition.
 A complete online helpfile, as provided for the full version too . The helpfile contains
both extracts from the HLM 5 manual and a tutorial with a number of illustrated examples using the data and
examples distributed with the student edition.
The student edition can run all the analyses the full version can in terms of models selected,
statistical options and output. Restrictions are, however, placed on the data used and the size of the model
selected. The following restrictions apply in this edition:
 The DBMSCOPY utility used for the importation of data is not included. The student
edition will only accept ASCII, SYSTAT, SPSS for Windows or SAS transport data files.
 For a level3 model, the maximum number of observations that may be used at levels
1, 2 and 3 are approximately 7500, 1700 and 60 respectively. Note that the restriction applies to observations
in the case of the level2 file, for example, and not to actual number of level2 units to be included in the
analysis.
 For a level2 model, the maximum number of observations at the two levels are 7200
at level1 and 350 at level2 of the hierarchy.
 No more than 5 effects may be included in any HLM equation at any level of the model,
and the grand total of effects can not be 25 or higher.
Note that no technical support is provided for the student version.
