Simulation Study for Misspecifications on a Frailty Model

  title={Simulation Study for Misspecifications on a Frailty Model},
  author={Nancy L. Garcia},
In the last two decades there was a big leap in terms of survival analysis methodology. This type of analysis has been applied not only in the traditional areas of biology and engineering, but also in demography, social sciences and economy. One of the biggest problems in survival analysis is related to the presence of populational heterogeneity. A very well-known method of analysis is the method of partial likelihood based on the Cox’s proportional hazard model (Cox, 1972). In this model it is… CONTINUE READING
