Social and medical researchers have long been concerned about the need to properly model complex data structures, especially those where there is a hierarchical structure such as pupils nested within schools or measurements nested within individuals...failure to take account of such structures in standard models can lead to incorrect inferences. What has been less well appreciated is that a failure to properly model complex data structures makes it impossible to capture the complexity that exists in the real world.
