Keywords: marginal models ; inverse weighting ; non-ignorable cluster size

We explain the problem of analyzing clustered data when the size of the cluster is non-constant and may be related to the outcome of interest. In such cases, inference for marginal models with standard methods may lead to biased answers. We present correct inference procedures, both nonparametric and semi-parametric, in a number of estimation and testing problems.
