Nested Design

A design in which levels of one or more factors are subsampled within one or more other factors so that, for example, each level of a factor B occurs at only one level of another factor A. Factor B is said to be nested within factor A. An example might be where interest centres on assessing the effect of hospital and doctor on a response variable, patient satisfaction. The doctors can only practice at one hospital so they are nested within hospitals.
