Hierarchical linear models improve the measurement of performance when applied to a constructsuch as a metroplex. It compares the outcomes of a hierarchical linear model with those of a multipleregression model to evaluate whether meteorological conditions at individual airports and overallwould explain variations in block delays. The study used the cases of the three largest airports inthe DC Metroplex and concluded airborne delays had a significant random effect on block delays inspite of meteorological conditions at each airport. It pointed out that surface operations efficiencyplayed a significant role in explaining variations in block delays.
