Nominal Outcome in Multilevel-Analysis PreviousNext

Dear Dr. Muthen,
in a Multilevel-model I want to predict membership in one of three groups on the within level. I use a random slope in predicting group membership.
On the between-level I want to predict the random slope from a between level variable.
In multinomial Regression typically there are two slopes for nominal outcome with three values. But the output only shows the results of predicting one random slope on the between level. Is there a way to get both slopes? Or does it just dont work this way?

Thank you.

If you are specifying a multinomial logistic regression, you will obtain two slopes if you have three categories. I would have to see your full output and license number at to understand exactly what you are doing.

I want to do a multinomial logistic regression and my data is nested. but I'm not sure if I should do a multilevel analysis. Is there anything like ICC for nominal variables in Mplus?

No, there is not. Run the model with TYPE=COMPLEX and TYPE=GENERAL. If you see differences in the standard errors, this would indicate nesting should be taken into account.
