My data has 5 blocks . Within each block, the same 3 sub-blocks (
1,2,3)are applied to each individual.
I want to examine the the effects of the blocks and sub-blocks.
model <- lmer(yield ~ (1|block) + (1|subblock), data=myData )
I am having trouble on labelling the sub-block data, since I do not know how I should label the sub-block data ?
What would the difference be if I label the subblock as below (left vs right) ? How would the interpretation be different ?
