Longitudinal data analysis using generalized linear models

  title={Longitudinal data analysis using generalized linear models},
  author={Kung-Yee Liang and Scott Zeger},
This paper proposes an extension of generalized linear models to the analysis of longitudinal data. We introduce a class of estimating equations that give consistent estimates of the regression parameters and of their variance under mild assumptions about the time dependence. The estimating equations are derived without specifying the joint distribution of a subject's observations yet they reduce to the score equations for multivariate Gaussian outcomes. Asymptotic theory is presented for the… CONTINUE READING
