Thanks Lars! Here is my example modified using the booktabs package for
completeness sake.

\documentclass[12pt, pdftex]{article}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}[htp]
\begin{center}
{\scriptsize

\begin{tabular}{lrrrrrrr}
\hline
&  & \multicolumn{2}{c}{level1} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{level2} &
\multicolumn{2}{c}{level3} \\
\cmidrule(lr{.75em}){3-4}  \cmidrule(lr{.75em}){5-6}
\cmidrule(lr{.75em}){7-8}
\noalign{\smallskip}
type & f1 & f2 & f3 & f4 & f5 & f6 & f7 \\
\hline
Section    & 2.3 & 2.288 & 0.009 &  1.779 & 0.008 & 0.338 & 2.1\\
Period    & 2.8 & 3.309 & 0.002  &  4.060 & 0.000 & 0.866 & 2.3\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
}
\end{center}
\end{table}
\end{document}
