When considering competing risks survival data, the cause specific hazard functions are often modelled by the proportional hazards Cox regression model. First, we present how to estimate the parameters in this model when some of the covariates are allowed to have exactly the same effect on several causes of failure. In many cases, the focus is not on the parameter estimates, but rather on the probability of observing a failure from a specific cause for individuals with specified covariate… CONTINUE READING
