GEE Examples

Part of the Statistics for Biology and Health book series (SBH)


In this chapter, we present examples of GEE models applied to three datasets containing correlated responses. The examples demonstrate how to obtain odds ratios, construct confidence intervals, and perform statistical tests on the regression coefficients. The examples also illustrate the effect of selecting different correlation structures for a GEE model applied to the same data, and compare the results from the GEE approach with a standard logistic regression approach in which the correlation between responses is ignored.
