Summary A new model selection criterion, termed as the “quasi-likelihood under the independence model criterion” (QIC), was proposed by Pan (2001) for GEE models. Cui (2007) developed a general computing program to implement the QIC method for a range of statistical distributions. However, only a special case of the negative binomial distribution was considered in Cui (2007), where the dispersion parameter equals to unity. This article introduces a new computing program that can be applied for the general negative binomial model, where the dispersion parameter can be any fixed value. An example is also given in this article.
