Generalized Estimating Equations | General, R, and SPSS Resources

I was recently asked about Generalised Estimating Equations (GEEs). I haven't yet used the technique, but it's on my list of things to learn more about. This post catalogues some of the Internet resources on GEEs.
General Resources
  • Hanley et al (2003, Generalized Estimating Equations: An Orientation) provide an introduction to GEEs with an emphasis on epidemiological examples. It is designed to be accessible to non-statisticians.
  • Horton and Lipsitz (1999, Review of Software to Fit GEE) provide an overview of generalized estimating equations and review several statistical packages (SAS, Stata, SUDAAN, S-Plus). Note that the review took place in 1999. Software has changed. The review does not include the more recent R packages or GENLIN in SPSS.
