This book presents some recent developments in correlated data analysis. It utilizes the class of dispersion models as marginal components in the formulation of joint models for correlated data. This enables the book to handle a broader range of data types than those analyzed by traditional generalized linear models. One example is correlated angular data.
This book provides a systematic treatment for the topic of estimating functions. Under this framework, both generalized estimating equations (GEE) and quadratic inference functions (QIF) are studied as special cases. In addition to marginal models and mixed-effects models, this book covers topics on joint regression analysis based on Gaussian copulas and generalized state space models for longitudinal data from long time series.
