Conditional Proportional Hazards Models

  • Barry C. Arnold
  • Yong Hee Kim


Bivariate survival models can sometimes be characterized in terms of conditional survival functions of the form P(X > x|Y > y) and P(Y > y|X > x). Attention is focussed on models in which these conditional survival functions are of the proportional hazards form. A characterization of such distributions is provided and related estimation problems are discussed.
