Simulated Datasets
Our 1995 paper relied on simulations of threelevel variancecomponents models with moderate and large random effects at levels 2 and 3 using the same nested structure as the actual survey data from Guatemala.
The datasets available here represent 100 simulations of the structure with large (s^{2}=1) random effects at both levels 2 (family) and 3 (community).
Variables
Each dataset has 8 variables on 2449 cases. The variables are
Column  Variable  Notes 

1  child id  2449 kids, ids in 1..14684 
2  family id  1558 families, ids in 3..2782 
3  community id  161 communities, ids in 1..242 
4  binary dependent variable  0,1 
5  corresponding latent variable  logistic 
6  childlevel covariate  mean .0955621, range .452557 .541957 
7  familylevel covariate  mean .083816 , range 1.485043 to 2.284106 
8  communitylevel covariate  mean .6857591, range 1.818267 to .0097808 
All datasets were generated using true parameter values equal to 0.665267 for the constant and equal to 1 for each of the three covariates, and using normal variates with variance 1 for the family and community effect.
Packages
The 100 simulated datasets are named s3bb1.dat
to s3bb100.dat
and are available in plain text ASCII format, zipped into four archives with 25 datasets each:
File  Simulations  Size 

rgs3bb1.zip  125  916 KB 
rgs3bb2.zip  2650  917 KB 
rgs3bb3.zip  5175  917 KB 
rgs3bb4.zip  76100  917 KB 
Note that only variables 4 and 5 vary across datasets. In view of this, we are also making the data available in a much more compact format, a single zipped file rg3bbpack.zip that includes five files:

File
s3bbx.dat
has variables 1,2,3,6,7 and 8; in other words, the variables that are constant accros simulations. Files
s3bby1.dat
tos3bby4.dat
have 25 columns each, representing the outcomes of simulations 125, 2650, 5175 and 76100, respectively, for all 2449 cases
You may find this format more suitable for some applications.
