Dear R mixed model users,

I’d like to announce the release of my new R package cvGEE (https://cran.r-project.org/package=cvGEE) that validates (using repeated cross-validation) predictions from generalized estimating equations using proper scoring rules. It can be used to compare nested and non-nested GEEs, such as to compare GEEs with the same mean structure but different working correlation matrices.

You may find more information and examples in the dedicated website:


and vignette


The package currently works with geeglm objects returned by the geepack but there are plans to extend it to other GEE-solvers packages. Additional future plans include functions for calibration plots.

As always, any kind of feedback is more than welcome.
