Evaluating the risk of stroke is important in reducing the incidence of this devastating disease Here we apply Bayesian model averaging to variable selection in Cox proportional hazard models in the context of the Cardiovascular Health Study a comprehensive investigation into the risk factors for stroke We introduce a technique based on the leaps and bounds algorithm which e ciently locates and ts the best models in the very large model space and thereby extends all subsets regression to Cox… CONTINUE READING
