About This Book
Multistate Models for the Analysis of Life History Data
Multistate Models for the Analysis of Life History Data provides the first comprehensive treatment of multistate modeling and analysis, including parametric, nonparametric and semiparametric methods applicable to many types of life history data. Special models such as illness-death, completing risks and progressive processes are considered, as well as more complex models. The book provides both theoretical development and illustration of analysis based on data from randomized trials and observational cohort studies in health research.
