# Generalized Linear Model and Generalized Estimating Equations: A statistical tutorial in SPSS

## Technote (troubleshooting)

## Problem(Abstract)

Where can I find more information on the Generalized Linear Model and Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) procedure (GENLIN) in SPSS?

## Resolving the problem

To view the Case Studies, follow these steps.

1. From the SPSS menus go to Help>Case Studies.

2. In the Internet Explorer window that pops up, click the plus sign (+) next to Advanced Models Option.

3. Click on Generalized Linear Models Logistic Regression

Here is the table of contents for the GENLIN Case Studies.
