Many epidemiologic studies involve the occurrence of recurrent events and much attention has been given for the development of modeling techniques that take into account the dependence structure of multiple event data. This paper presents a time-dependent coefficient rates model that incorporates regression splines in its estimation procedure. Such methods would be appropriate in situations where the effect of an exposure or covariates changes over time in recurrent event data settings. The… CONTINUE READING
