Asymptotic Results with Generalized Estimating Equations for Longitudinal Data

  title={Asymptotic Results with Generalized Estimating Equations for Longitudinal Data},
  author={Raluca Balan and I. Schiopu-Kratina},
We consider the marginal models of Liang and Zeger [Biometrika 73 (1986) 13–22] for the analysis of longitudinal data and we develop a theory of statistical inference for such models. We prove the existence , weak consistency and asymptotic normality of a sequence of estimators defined as roots of pseudo-likelihood equations. 1. Introduction. Longitudinal data sets arise in biostatistics and lifetime testing problems when the responses of the individuals are recorded repeatedly over a period of… CONTINUE READING
