In the general setting of semi-Markov models, the independent competing risks model may be viewed as a special case where the smallest of potential independent sojourn times leading to different possible final states is observed. Inference for the general case is valid in this special case, but estimators specifically derived for this particular case may be used in order to test whether it takes place or not. The proposed estimators and test are proved to work well in a simulation study. They… CONTINUE READING
