Semiparametric regression for clustered data

  title={Semiparametric regression for clustered data},
  author={Binshan Lin},
We consider estimation in a semiparametric partially generalised linear model for clustered data using estimating equations. A marginal model is assumed where the mean of the outcome variable depends on some covariates parametrically and a cluster-level covariate nonparametrically. A profile-kernel method allowing for working correlation matrices is developed. We show that the nonparametric part of the model can be estimated using standard nonparametric methods, including smoothing-parameter… CONTINUE READING
