Questions tagged [intraclass-correlation]

Intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) measures how much quantitative values are similar or associated within groups. There exist several versions and alternative formulations of ICC. The correlation is used to assess a dataset clusteredness, agreement among raters and in other settings.

How low should an ICC be to justify disaggregating (i.e. ignore clustering) a multilevel/mixed model?

It is conventional wisdom that ICCs can be used to estimate how much clustering/non-independence is occurring in data consisting of two or more levels. ICCs can inform whether a multilevel/mixed model ...
