Format

A data frame with 2000 observations on the following 6 variables.

ID

a numeric vector for subject ID

resp1

a numeric vector for the first longitudinal count response

resp2

a numeric vector for the second longitudinal count response

X

a numeric vector for the covariate, X

time

a numeric vector for the time point at which observations are collected

X.time

a numeric vector for the interaction between X and time

Details

The covariates, X and time are the standardized values indeed. The related interaction is calculated by using these standardized values. X is a time-independent covariate. For the details of data generation see the user manual of the R package mmm at http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/mmm/index.html.
