A key example dataset used for examples in the HLM software manual. Included here for use in replicating HLM analyses in R.
A data frame with 7,185 observations on the following 8 variables.
a numeric vector, 160 unique values
a numeric vector for the performance on a standardized math assessment
a numeric vector coded 0 for male and 1 for female
