Shared frailty models for recurrent events

  • Philip Hougaard
Part of the Statistics for Biology and Health book series (SBH)


Recurrent events are in several ways more complicated and in other ways more simple to analyze than parallel data of several individuals, and this is why the shared frailty models for such data are described in a separate chapter. This chapter treats the probability model as well as the statistical inference.
