Download Generalized Estimating Equations by James W. Hardin,Joseph M. Hilbe PDF

By James W. Hardin,Joseph M. Hilbe

even if robust and versatile, the tactic of generalized linear versions (GLM) is proscribed in its skill to properly care for longitudinal and clustered info. constructed in particular to deal with those information varieties, the strategy of Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) extends the GLM set of rules to deal with the correlated information encountered in healthiness learn, social technology, biology, and different similar fields.

Generalized Estimating Equations presents the 1st whole remedy of GEE technique in all of its adaptations. After introducing the topic and reviewing GLM, the authors study the several sorts of generalized estimating equations and examine them with different equipment, resembling fastened and random results versions. The remedy then strikes to residual research and goodness of healthy, demonstrating the various graphical and statistical innovations acceptable to GEE analysis.

With its cautious stability of origins, functions, relationships, and interpretation, this ebook deals a different chance to achieve an entire figuring out of GEE equipment, from their foundations to their implementation. whereas both worthy to theorists, it contains the mathematical and algorithmic aspect researchers have to positioned GEE into practice.
