The purpose of this paper is to construct confidence intervals for the regression coefficients in high-dimensional Cox proportional hazards regression models where the number of covariates may be larger than the sample size. Our debiased estimator construction is similar to those in Zhang and Zhang (2014) and van de Geer et al. (2014), but the time-dependent covariates and censored risk sets introduce considerable additional challenges. Our theoretical results, which provide conditions under…

Statistical Inference for Cox Proportional Hazards Models with a Diverging Number of Covariates

For statistical inference on regression models with a diverging number of covariates, the existing literature typically makes sparsity assumptions on the inverse of the Fisher information matrix.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to construct confidence intervals for the regression coefficients in the Fine-Gray model for competing risks data with random censoring, where the number of

A Modern Theory for High-dimensional Cox Regression Models

: The proportional hazards model has been extensively used in many fields such as biomedicine to estimate and perform statistical significance testing on the effects of covariates influ-encing the

High‐dimensional robust inference for Cox regression models using desparsified Lasso

A desparsified Lasso estimator is proposed based on the log partial likelihood function and shown to converge to a pseudo‐true parameter vector, Interestingly, the sparsity of the true parameter can be inferred from that of the above limiting parameter.

The estimator, obtained via constructing a system of projected estimating equations, is shown to be asymptotically normally distributed under certain regularity conditions.

On an extension of the promotion time cure model

We consider the problem of estimating the distribution of time-to-event data that are subject to censoring and for which the event of interest might never occur, i.e., some subjects are cured. To

Statistical Significance in High-dimensional Linear Mixed Models

This paper demonstrates how to correct a 'naive' ridge estimator to build asymptotically valid confidence intervals for mixed effect models and validate the theoretical results with numerical experiments that show that the method can successfully account for the correlation induced by the random effects.

On asymptotically optimal confidence regions and tests for high-dimensional models

A general method for constructing confidence intervals and statistical tests for single or low-dimensional components of a large parameter vector in a high-dimensional model and develops the corresponding theory which includes a careful analysis for Gaussian, sub-Gaussian and bounded correlated designs.

Confidence intervals for low dimensional parameters in high dimensional linear models

The method proposed turns the regression data into an approximate Gaussian sequence of point estimators of individual regression coefficients, which can be used to select variables after proper thresholding, and demonstrates the accuracy of the coverage probability and other desirable properties of the confidence intervals proposed.

ORACLE INEQUALITIES FOR THE LASSO IN THE COX MODEL.

Under mild conditions, it is proved that these quantities are bounded from below by positive constants for time-dependent covariates, including cases where the number of covariates is of greater order than the sample size and can be treated as positive constants in the oracle inequalities.

p-Values for High-Dimensional Regression

Inference across multiple random splits can be aggregated while maintaining asymptotic control over the inclusion of noise variables, and it is shown that the resulting p-values can be used for control of both family-wise error and false discovery rate.

High-dimensional graphs and variable selection with the Lasso

It is shown that neighborhood selection with the Lasso is a computationally attractive alternative to standard covariance selection for sparse high-dimensional graphs and is hence equivalent to variable selection for Gaussian linear models.
