Hello. When using the type=complex option in Mplus, how does one interpret a combination of individual-level and cluster-level covariates?

1.) In particular, since clustering is mainly treated as a nuisance in aggregated models, would it be correct to directly interpret cluster-level covariates as one normally would in a (disaggregated model) multilevel model?

2.) Is there a significant difference in the substantive interpretation of cluster-level covariates when comparing aggregated vs. disaggregated models?

Thank you.

2. No.
