Methods Based on Counts and Rate Functions
In many settings the event of interest represents a transient adverse experience for which there is little immediate impact on the event generating process. An example is a mild seizure in a study of epileptic patients. Although such events are undesirable, their occurrence does not materially affect the risk of subsequent seizures and so analyses based on event counts and the rate of event occurrence are natural.
