Title: Proportional cause specific reversed hazards model
Abstract of Talk
The proportional reversed hazards model explains the multiplicative effect of covariates on the baseline reversed hazard rate function of lifetimes. In the present study, we introduce a proportional cause-specific reversed hazards model. The proposed regression model facilitates the analysis of failure time data with multiple causes of failure under left censoring. The regression parameters are estimated using partial likelihood approach and provided Breslow’s type estimators for the cumulative cause-specific reversed hazard rate functions. Asymptotic properties of the estimators are discussed. Simulation studies are conducted to assess their performance and the applicability of the proposed model is illustrated through a real data set.
