There has been much debate about the relative merits of mixed effects and population-averaged logistic models. We present a different perspective on this issue by noting that the investigation of the relationship between these models for a given dataset offers a type of sensitivity analysis that may reveal problems with assumptions of the mixed effects and/or population-averaged models for clustered binary response data in general and longitudinal binary outcomes in particular. We present… CONTINUE READING
