- To GEE or not to GEE: comparing population average and mixed models for estimating the associations between neighborhood risk factors and healthAlan E Hubbard
Division of Biostatistics, Berkeley School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Epidemiology 21:467-74. 2010..We conclude that the estimation-equation approach of population average models provides a more useful approximation of the truth...
- Population intervention models in causal inferenceAlan E Hubbard
Division of Biostatistics, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720, U S A
Biometrika 95:35-47. 2008..We provide a class of inverse-probability-of-treatment-weighted and doubly-robust estimators of the causal parameters in these models. The finite-sample performance of these new estimators is explored in a simulation study...

University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, Division of Biostatistics University Hall, Berkeley, CA, USA
Ther Clin Risk Manag 3:475-84. 2007..This method can easily be extrapolated to different clinical settings and for different disease outcomes. In addition, the software and algorithms used are open-source (free) and we provide the code in the appendix...

- Aging impacts transcriptomes but not genomes of hormone-dependent breast cancersChristina Yau
Buck Institute for Age Research, 8001 Redwood Boulevard, Novato, CA 94945, USA
Breast Cancer Res 9:R59. 2007..Except for inherited forms of breast cancer, however, there is little genetic or epigenetic understanding of the biological basis linking aging with sporadic breast cancer incidence and its clinical behavior...
- Early prediction of median survival among a large AIDS surveillance cohortWayne T A Enanoria
Division of Epidemiology, School of Public Health, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, California, USA
BMC Public Health 7:127. 2007..In this study, a new approach to predict AIDS median survival is presented and its accuracy tested using AIDS surveillance data...

Division of Epidemiology, School of Public Health University of California, Berkeley 140, Warren Hall, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
BMC Infect Dis 4:6. 2004..We conducted a systematic review to determine the accuracy of nucleic acid amplification (NAA) tests in the diagnosis of tuberculous pleuritis...
- Nonparametric survival estimation when death is reported with delayA E Hubbard
University of California, School of Public Health, Division of Biostatistics, Berkeley, USA
Lifetime Data Anal 6:237-50. 2000..This analysis underscores the pitfalls of not accounting for delay when estimating the survival distribution and suggests a significant reduction in bias by using our estimator...
