In this article, we develop a statistical inference technique for the unknown coefficient functions in the varying coeffi- cient model with random effect. A residual-adjusted block empirical likelihood RABEL method is suggested to inves- tigate the model by taking the within-subject correlation into account. Due to the residual adjustment, the proposed RABEL is asymptotically chi-squared distribution. We illustrate the large sample performance of the proposed method via Monte Carlo simulations and a real data application.
