Estimating the loss in expectation of life due to cancer using flexible parametric survival models.

Abstract

A useful summary measure for survival data is the expectation of life, which is calculated by obtaining the area under a survival curve. The loss in expectation of life due to a certain type of cancer is the difference between the expectation of life in the general population and the expectation of life among the cancer patients. This measure is used little… (More)
