The TVEM SAS macro estimates coefficients in a time-varying effect model. Traditional analytic methods assume that covariates have constant (i.e., time-invariant) effects on a time-varying outcome. The %TVEM macros are able to estimate the time-varying effects of covariates. TVEM is a convenient tool for several types of data.
Features of the TVEM SAS macro
- Option to include multiple non-time-varying covariates
- Option to include multiple time-varying covariates
- Ability to accommodate of different distributions (normal, logistic, or Poisson) measured over time
- Option to employ a penalized truncated power spline basis instead of a B-spline basis function
- Ability to model within-subject correlation using random effects or a robust sandwich variance estimator New in version 3.1.0
- Enhanced screen output for improved interpretability New in version 3.1.0
- Multiple optional output datasets New in version 3.1.0
The %TVEM_zip for outcomes (v 2.1.1) is available separately to fit zero-inflated Poisson models.
