Consider the scenario where there are N subjects each with at least n data points.
I am trying to figure out the difference between fitting a multilevel regression model assuming No Pool to all subjects and fitting the regression model separately to each subject.
- Do the two modelling approaches imply that each subject is independent (that is has its own parameters)?
I have asked for a clarification of the two approaches as I am told to fit a model separately to each subject data, but then I am wondering if wouldn’t this be same as fitting a multilevel No Pool model.
Thanks for the help
