Summary "This is the first book devoted to generalized estimating equations (GEE), which has become a predominant method for analyzing longitudinal and clustered data and has been fully incorporated into the major software packages, such as SAS, S-Plus, and Stata. The text explores the theory, applications, and alternative methodologies, while incorporating the newest trends, such as GEE2, EGEE, ALR, and missing value problems."--Publisher description
