# Longitudinal data analysis for discrete and continuous outcomes.

@article{Zeger1986LongitudinalDA, title={Longitudinal data analysis for discrete and continuous outcomes.}, author={Scott L. Zeger and Kung Yee Liang}, journal={Biometrics}, year={1986}, volume={42 1}, pages={ 121-30 } }

Longitudinal data sets are comprised of repeated observations of an outcome and a set of covariates for each of many subjects. One objective of statistical analysis is to describe the marginal expectation of the outcome variable as a function of the covariates while accounting for the correlation among the repeated observations for a given subject. This paper proposes a unifying approach to such analysis for a variety of discrete and continuous outcomes. A class of generalized estimating…
