Table 2 Example 2 REM Results

From: Reference effect measures for quantifying, comparing and visualizing variation from random and fixed effects in non-normal multilevel models, with applications to site variation in medical procedure use and outcomes

  95% Range REM (0.75) and 95% CI REM (0.975) and 95% CI
All patient risk factors [0.23, 4.38] 1.69 (1.65, 1.74) 4.38 (4.12, 4.77)
All site characteristics [0.81, 1.16] 1.06 (1.03, 1.11) 1.16 (1.09, 1.28)
Unmeasured site variation (theoretical) [0.78, 1.29] 1.09 (1.06, 1.13) 1.29 (1.17, 1.41)
Unmeasured site variation (bootstrap) [0.78, 1.29] 1.09, (1.04, 1.11) 1.29 (1.11, 1.35)
