OBJECTIVE To describe the prevalence of physical function limitations among a nationally representative sample of adults with prediabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We performed a cross-sectional analysis of 5,991 respondents≥53 years of age from the 2006 wave of the Health and Retirement Study. All respondents self-reported physical function(More)
Several authors have indicated that incorrectly classified cause of death for prostate cancer survivors may have played a role in the observed recent peak and decline of prostate cancer mortality. Motivated by the suggestion we studied a competing risks model where other cause of death may be misattributed as a death of interest. We first consider a naïve(More)

Misclassified causes of failures are a common phenomenon in competing risks survival data such as cancer mortality. We propose new estimating equations for a semiparametric proportional hazards (PH) model with misattributed causes of failures. Unlike other methods, the estimator does not require any parametric assumptions on baseline cause-specific hazard(More)
