Multilevel regression modelling techniques are applied in order to establish whether variations relate to the type of people in particular places (compositional effects) or to the characteristics of the places themselves (contextual effects). Results show significant differences between places, which cannot be accounted for solely by compositional effects. These differences are complex and contextual effects are found to be different for different types of people.
