A set of estimators for model parameters in the framework of linear mixed models is considered for longitudinal data with multiple levels of random variation. Various bootstrap methods are assessed for making inference about the parameters including the variance components for which, typically, bootstrap confidence intervals show undercoverage. A new weighted estimating equation bootstrap, which uses different weight schemes for different parameter estimators, is proposed. It shows improved...[Show more]
