Subject: generalized estimating equations

First, thanks to those who responded to my request regarding the handling
of missing data in PROC MIXED. I received some very helpful replies.
Second, I am wondering if anyone out there can explain the difference
between generalized estimating equations (GEE's) and random effects
models. In my very limited reading regarding GEE's, it appears that they
are very similar to random effects models, and I'm not clear on how they
differ. I would imagine the difference lies in the parameter estimation
method, however any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
