Reliability and Survival Analysis II
Fit Parametric Survival launches a regression platform that fits a survival distribution scaled to a linear model. The distributions to choose from are Weibull, lognormal, exponential, Fréchet, and loglogistic. The regression uses an iterative maximum likelihood method. Accelerated Failure models are one type of regression model. This chapter also shows how to fit parametric models using the Nonlinear platform.
Fit Proportional Hazards launches a regression platform that uses Cox’s proportional hazards method to fit a linear model. Proportional hazards models are popular regression models for survival data with covariates. See Cox (1972). This model is semiparametric; the linear ...
