We have data on proportion of children stunted at age 1 from 13
locations, for each of 3 years for boys and girls.
We wish to examine the association between stnting and hospitalization,
at the level of the location, contrlling for year, sex and other
factors.
Which of the 3 is the correct analysis: 1. multivariable regression, 2.
XT-GEE regression with (group variable=location, link=log,
family=poisson) 3. Poisson regression.
We would appreciate an answer or a link to anyone who might be able to
help us.
