Questions tagged [generalized-estimating-equations]

Stands for Generalized Estimating Equations which is an approach to estimating regression coefficients. GEE can be used on clustered / longitudinal data and has the attractive property that it provides consistent estimators of regression coefficients and unbiased inference even when the association structure within a cluster is mis-specified.
