GEE with a negative binomial distribution

Hi all,

I am fairly new to statistics, and need help with a project.

What does, "In terms of counts, annualized rates will be reported using GEE with a negative binomial distribution" mean by? and how do I do it on SAS?

Please help!

Thanks in advance!

Re: GEE with a negative binomial distribution

IMHO this is a pretty daunting project if you are new to statistics, but to answer your question, see the GENMOD procedure.

The Getting Started example assumes a binomial distribution, but you can use that example and change dist=bin to dist=negbin (on the MODEL statement) in order to fit a negative binomial model on that data.
