Re: proc nlmixed books

You might want to share your level/experience with statistics, mixed modeling, and SAS programming.

 

I recommend SAS for Mixed Models (Littell, et al), but it is not easy reading and it is quite thick. It has one chapter (Ch 15) devoted to nonlinear mixed models. The drawback (in addition to its size) is that it was published in 2006 and the SAS mixed-modeling procedures have evolved quite a bit from the SAS 9.1 days. 

 

If you want something more focused on NLMIXED, I would look at the SAS conference proceedings that mention PROC NLMIXED, especially Kurada (2016) and High and ElRayes (2017).

Thanks. I was already aware of this book. Shame only one chapter and outdated ...

Re: proc nlmixed books

One of my colleagues reminded me of a recent book by Ed Vonesh: Generalized Linear and Nonlinear Models for Correlated Data...Using SAS. My colleague says that Dr. Vonesh is an expert in NLMIXED and that the book is very well written, both as an introduction and as an advanced reference.  My colleague strongly recommends this book for researchers who want to learn more about how to use the GENMOD, GLIMMIX, and NLMIXED procedures.
