What matters to me is the structure. The formatting is just to show what I'd like to stand out from the rest in some way. Some things I'd like to accomplish are the "merged cell" effect and being able to tweak when to wrap text.

1. Make sure text is wrapped when the data has over a specific length.
2. Use a multicolumn for the bottom right cells, as per the image?

Here's what I have:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{multirow}
\begin{document}
% Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.
\begin{table}[ht]
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{cccc}
\hline
\multirow{2}{*}{Outer index 1} & Inner index 1.1 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
& Inner index 1.2 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
\hline
\multirow{2}{*}{Outer index 2} & Inner index 2.1 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
& Inner index 2.2 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
\hline
\multirow{6}{*}{Outer index 3} &  Inner index 3.1 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.2 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.3 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.4 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.5 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.5 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
&Inner index 3.6 & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped. & Text data placeholder. May be long enough that it needs to be wrapped.\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{table}

\end{document}
