4 1. How frequently are you in contact with this person (personally, by mail, telephone or Internet)? 1 Less than once a year. 2 Several times a year. 3 About once a month. 4 Several times a month. 5 Several times a week. 6 Every day. 2. How close do you feel to this person? Please describe how close you feel on a scale from1 to 5, where 1 means not close and 5 means very close Not Close Very Close 3. How important is this person in your life? Please describe how close you feel on a scale from 1 to 5, where 1 means not important and 5 means very important Not importantVery important 4. How often does this person upset you? 1 Never. 2 Rarely. 3 Sometimes. 4 Often. Introduction

5 Model Y ij = t ij T i + e ij (1)) where: Y ij : response or measured variable i measured by method j. T i : unobserved variable of interest (trait). Related to validity. e ij : random error, which is related to lack of reliability. Model

9 The highest level: group level = egos = g The lowest level: individual level = alters = k Multilevel model Multilevel analysis. Two-level model.

10 The mean centred individual scores for group g and individual k can be decomposed into: Between group component (3) Within group component (4) where: is the total average over all alters and egos. is the average of all alters of the g th ego. Y gk is the score on the name interpreter of the k th alter chosen by the g th ego. G is the total number of egos. n is the number of alters within each ego, constant. N=nG is the total number of alters. Multilevel model

11 Sample covariance matrices: Multilevel model SW=SW=SB=SB= S T = S B + S W = (5)(6) (7) Population covariance matrices: T = B + W (8) Y ij = t Bij T Bi + e Bij + t wij T wi + e wij (9)() Y Bij Y Wij
