This paper investigates generalized estimating equations for association parameters, which are frequently of interest in family studies, with emphasis on covariance estimation. Separate link functions are used to connect the mean, the scale, and the correlation to linear predictors involving possibly different sets of covariates, and separate estimating equations are proposed for the three sets of parameters. Simulations show that the robust 'sandwich' variance estimator and the jackknife… CONTINUE READING
