Frailty models in survival analysis

By: Wienke, Andreas.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Chapman & Hall/CRC biostatistics series. Publisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2011Description: xxi, 301 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9781420073881.Subject(s): Failure time data analysis - Mathematics | Mortality - Mathematical models | Survival analysis (Biometry) - MathematicsDDC classification: 519.546 Summary: The book extensively explores how univariate frailty models can represent unobserved heterogeneity. It also emphasizes correlated frailty models as extensions of univariate and shared frailty models. The author analyzes similarities and differences between frailty and copula models; discusses problems related to frailty models, such as tests for homogeneity; and describes parametric and semiparametric models using both frequentist and Bayesian approaches. He also shows how to apply the models to real data using the statistical packages of R, SAS, and Stata. The appendix provides the technical mathematical results used throughout.
