Details

The bang dataset is one of the sample datasets provided with the multilevel-modelling software package MLwiN (Rasbash et al., 2009), and is a subset of data from the 1989 Bangladesh Fertility Survey (Huq and Cleland, 1990) used by Rasbash et al. (2012) as an example when fitting logistic models for binary and binomial responses. The full sample was analysed in Amin et al. (1997).
