Multifrailty and multilevel models

In previous chapters, we discussed models with one frailty term. In this chapter, frailty models with more than one frailty term will be studied. We distinguish two different cases. In the first case, the different frailty terms occur within the same cluster, whereas in the second case, the frailty terms are nested (hierarchical or multilevel models).
