Weighted Generalized estimating equations (WGEE) is an extension of generalized linear models to longitudinal or clustered data by incorporating the correlation within-cluster when data is missing at random (MAR). The parameters in mean, scale, correlation structures are estimate based on quasi-likelihood. The package wgeesel also contains model selection criteria for variable selection in the mean model and for the selection of a working correlation structure in longitudinal data with dropout or monotone missingness using WGEE.
The collection of functions includes:
estimates parameters based on WGEE in mean, scale, and correlation structures, through mean link, scale link, and correlation link.
calculate the QIC (QICu), MQIC (MQICu), Rotnitzky-Jewell criteria for variable selection in the mean model and/or selection of a working correlation structure in GEE (unbalanced data is allowed).
calculate the MLIC (MLICC) and QICWr (QICWp) for variable selection in the mean model and the selection of a working correlation structure in WGEE, which can accommodate dropout missing at random (MAR).
can simulate longitudinal response data in different distribution (gaussian, binomial, poisson) with drop missingness.
