Competing Risks and Multistate Models with R Cover Image

This book explains hazard-based analyses of competing risks and multistate data using the R statistical programming code, placing special emphasis on interpretation of results. Includes real data examples, and encourages readers to simulate their own data.

Full Description
This book covers competing risks and multistate models, sometimes summarized as event history analysis. These models generalize the analysis of time to a single event (survival analysis) to analysing the timing of distinct terminal events (competing risks) and possible intermediate events (multistate models). Both R and multistate methods are promoted with a focus on nonparametric methods.
