SAS Macro for Estimation of Functional Hierarchical Linear Models (FHLM) Using Local Linear Regression Estimation Procedure

Overview

For use with SAS version 9.x for Windows.

Functional hierarchical linear models (FHLMs) extend mixed effects models, hierarchical linear models, and multilevel models by allowing both fixed effects and random effects (i.e. individual effects) in these models to vary over time. Li, Root and Shiffman (2006) proposed FHLMs for analysis of ecological momentary assessment (EMA) data collected in smoking cession study. This macro allows prevention scientists to graphically represent these complex relationships.

The SAS FHLM-LLR macro is provided as a supplement to the article:
