SuperMix combines the functionality of four mixed-effects programs,
MIXREG, MIXOR, MIXNO, and MIXPREG, developed by Donald Hedeker and
Robert Gibbons into a single application to provide estimates for
mixed-effects regression models.
Mixed-effects models are also known as multilevel, hierarchical, or
random-effects models. These models can be used for the analysis of
longitudinal data, where each individual may be measured at a
different number of occasions. They can also be used for clustered
data, such as for patients within clinics.
SuperMix has been developed by SSI under an SBIR Phase II contract
N44MH32056, and has been released in September 2008. SuperMix will
fit models with continuous, count, ordinal, nominal, and survival
outcome variables with nested data, allowing for up to three levels
of nesting. Key features are listed below.
Easy to use graphical user interface: import data into the SuperMix
spreadsheet, then build new models using menus and dialog boxes.
Mixed-effects models for continuous outcome variables with
Mixed-effects models for ordinal regression analysis, including
non-proportional odds models and scaling effects.
Mixed-effects models for Poisson regression analysis.
Mixed-effects models for nominal logistic regression analysis.
Mixed-effects models for grouped-time survival analysis.
Two- and three-level models allowing for nested designs.
