I recently took an introductory course on multilevel modelling. Most of the datasets and examples we used were from the social sciences. I've just got a 2 week internship in a biostatistics department, where they want me to start a project concerning the variation at hospital level of patient outcomes for an emergency condition that has a high mortality rate, both between hospitals and over a 5 year time span. I'm starting the internship next week, and I was hoping to find a book or online resource where a similar analysis (preferably with R, Stata or MLwiN) has been done, preferably one where they provide their data sets for the reader. Any links would be most welcome.
Edit: I will be working with a dataset detailing all recorded aspects of the patient's in-hospital care. The main outcome of interest is death within 30 days of admission.
