A non-parametric test for composite hypotheses in survival analysis
- 15 Downloads
For survival data with several concomitant (regressor) variables a large sample non-parametric procedure is presented which provides significance tests of hypotheses about a subset of the concomitant variables. This non-iterative procedure resembles linear model methodology in simplicity and form. The method is useful to eliminate unimportant concomitant variables prior to estimation of model parameters.
