## What does intraclass correlation tell you?

Intraclass correlation measures the reliability of ratings or measurements for clusters — data that has been collected as groups or sorted into groups. A high Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) close to 1 indicates high similarity between values from the same group.

## What is ICC MLM?

The ICC (intra-class correlation) is interpretable and useful for random intercepts models. It is the correlation between two observations within the same cluster.

**What is ICC LMER?**

This means that the intraclass correlation (ICC) is 0.7021/(1.2218+0.7021)=. 36. Under Fixed Effects the estimate of the intercept is reported, which is 5.078. We can also use the sjstats package to calculate the ICC from the lmer output.

### How is ICC calculated?

The ICC is calculated by dividing the random effect variance, σ2i, by the total variance, i.e. the sum of the random effect variance and the residual variance, σ2ε.

### What is the difference between interclass and intraclass correlation?

Interclass correlation shows the association among the groups and intra-class correlation shows the association within a group. “Interclass” means among the groups. “Intra class” means within group.

**Can intraclass correlation be negative?**

The intraclass correlation will be negative whenever MSB < MSW. In other words, the intraclass correlation will be negative whenever the variability within groups exceeds the variability across groups. This means that scores in a group “diverge” relative to the noise present in the individuals.

## What does the ICC tell you?

In statistics, the intraclass correlation, or the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), is a descriptive statistic that can be used when quantitative measurements are made on units that are organized into groups. It describes how strongly units in the same group resemble each other.

## What is ICC regression?

The intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) is used in mixed models to give a sense of how much variance is explained by a random effect. It is calculated by dividing the variance of the random effect by the total random variance, i.e. sum of all random effects and error.

**What is a good ICC score?**

Under such conditions, we suggest that ICC values less than 0.5 are indicative of poor reliability, values between 0.5 and 0.75 indicate moderate reliability, values between 0.75 and 0.9 indicate good reliability, and values greater than 0.90 indicate excellent reliability.

### What are the 3 types of reliability?

Reliability refers to the consistency of a measure. Psychologists consider three types of consistency: over time (test-retest reliability), across items (internal consistency), and across different researchers (inter-rater reliability).

### What is a good intraclass correlation coefficient?

**Can you get a negative ICC?**

Negative ICC estimates are possible and can be interpreted as indicating that the true ICC is low, that is, two members chosen randomly from any class vary almost as much as any two randomly chosen members of the whole population.
