Thu 9/6/2018 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

This talk will focus on some recent development in this area, including a nonparametric and a semiparametric approach of estimating the joint survival function. These proposed methods have the ability to explore and estimate dependency between event times as well as to understand the relationship between dependency and risk factors. Simulation evaluations as well as an application to the Women’s Health Initiative’s hormone therapy trial will be presented.
