Abstract

The recent statistical literature attests to a considerable current interest in specialised statistical methods for the analysis of time to occurrence or failure time data in medical research. Frequently the primary objective of a failure time Study concerns with the association between certain co-variates Z = (Z1, ..., Zp) and the time T > 0 to the occurrence of a certain event. For example a clinical study may be designed to compare several treatment programmes in respect to the time T to recurrence of a disease or response to treatment of a disease. The regression vector Z would include indicator components for treatment as well as other prognostic factors.
