Abstract

Inference in generalized linear mixed models with multivariate random effects is often made cumbersome by the high-dimensional intractable integrals involved in the marginal likelihood. This article presents an inferential methodology based on the GEE approach. This method involves the approximations of the marginal likelihood and joint moments of the variables. It is also proposed an approximate Akaike and Bayesian information criterions based on the approximate marginal likelihood using the estimation of the parameters by the GEE approach. The different results are illustrated with a simulation study and with an analysis of real data from health-related quality of life.
