Hi,

how can I obtain p-values for the (level 1 and level 2) correlations in a two-level-random model?

thanks

Guy

There are two types of correlations: the H1 model (unrestricted mean and variance on each level and no random slopes anywhere) or the H0 model (this is the correlations implied by the random slope model).

To get the H1 model values one can use
ANALYSIS: TYPE = TWOLEVEL;
output: h1se;

or write the H1 model as a model
model:
%within%
y1-y10 with y1-y10;
%between%
y1-y10 with y1-y10;
output:stdY;

To get the H0 model implied correlations ( which are cluster specific) you
need to switch to the Bayes estimator and use the command
output:stdY(cluster);
