Estimates random slopes per cluster PreviousNext

Is it possible for multilevel logistic regession analyses to obtain the estimates of the random slopes per cluster? For example, I know that the slope of IV1 is positively associated with DV1, and varies across countries, but I don't know whether the direction is the same for all countries.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, just request FSCORES (factor scores).

Thank you for your quick reply. I have a follow up question: Is it possible to test whether these cluster-estimates significantly differ from 0 (or each other)? Or does such a test not make sense because the parameter estimates are realizations of the random effect?

Right, it doesn't make sense because you are considering a random variable values, not parameters. The interest should instead be of the variance of the random effect is zero or not.
