A user's guide to MLwiN manual

Note this is the official User Guide for MLwiN and has gone through several incarnations. The cited reference search for USers Guide ML* gives 180 different reference patterns for different years, spellings etc. (note this doesn't quite find all refs but the use of 2 wildcards has been removed in WoN) with the most popular being to the original Goldstein et al. (1998) with 305, 2 variants of Rasbash et al. (2000) with 245 and 174, Rasbash et al. (2004) with 211 and Rasbash et al. (2005) with 100 giving a total of 1,810 citations.

The software is perhaps trickier to collate the cited reference search for MLwi* gives 215 reference patterns. Some of these are actually for the manual and so should be in total above and some are for Min Yangs macro manual and should be discounted. Doing this results in a total of 477 citations
