"Social phenomena can hardly be well understood at a single level of analysis. Social systems are complex, with multiple levels from individuals through small groups to large societies. Many factors at different levels interact to influence one another and different disciplines focus on different levels of analysis." (Jung, Grim, Singer, Bramson, Berger, Holman, & Kovaka, 2019, p.303)
