In clinical applications, the prediction error of survival models has to be taken into consideration to assess the practical suitability of conclusions drawn from these models. Different approaches to evaluate the predictive performance of survival models have been suggested in the literature. In this article, we analyze the properties of the estimator of prediction error developed by Schemper and Henderson (2000, Biometrics 56, 249-255), which quantifies the absolute distance between predicted… CONTINUE READING
