Quasi-Least Squares Regression is a great resource for graduate students and researchers interested in estimating population-averaged effects from longitudinal and clustered data.

The book provides an introduction to quasi-least-squares (QLS) estimators and provides many examples using author-written Stata commands. QLS estimators extend GEE estimators to incorporate a wider set of correlation structures. The QLS estimators also allow researchers to determine the correlation structure that best fits their data.
