The analysis of failure times in the presence of competing risks.
A method, involving the estimation of parameters that relate time-dependent risk indicators for some causes to cause-specific hazard functions for other causes, is proposed for the study of interrelations among failure types. Expand

This paper gives sharp bounds for the joint survival function G(t(1), t(2),...,t(r)) identical with P(X(1) > t(1), X(2) > t(2),...,X(r) > t(r)), and for the marginal survival functions S(j)(t)Expand

Expressing the Kaplan-Meier estimator as a function of empirical subsurvival functions
Abstract The Kaplan-Meier estimator for the survival function in the censored data problem can be expressed for finite samples as an explicit function of two empirical subsurvival functions. ThisExpand

Close friends', parents', and older siblings' smoking: reevaluating their influence on children's smoking.
A number of longitudinal studies have explored the role of friends', parents', and older siblings' smoking in children's smoking acquisition. A reasonable implication of this previous research isExpand

Teacher Training as a Behavior Change Process: Principles and Results from a Longitudinal Study
For students to realize the benefits of behavior change curricula for disease prevention, programs must be implemented effectively. However, implementation failure is a common problem documented inExpand

Predicting adolescent smoking: a prospective study of personality variables.
OBJECTIVE We investigated how personality variables measured at 5th grade predict daily smoking in 12th grade. METHODS A group of 3130 fifth graders was assessed for a propensity towardExpand
