Abstract
Populations commonly exhibit complex structure with many levels, so that patients  (level 1) are assigned to clinics (level 2); while individuals (1) may 'learn' their health-related behaviour in the context of households (2) and local cultures (3).  Moreover, survey designs often reflect the population structure.  Thus, in a survey of voting, respondents (1) are clustered by constituencies (2).
