Accelerated Failure Time Model with Generalized Estimating Equations
Released Nov 13, 2014 by Sy Han (Steven) Chiou, Sangwook Kang, Jun Yan
This package features both rank-based estimates and least square estimates to the Accelerated Failure Time (AFT) model. For rank-based estimation, it provides approaches that include the computationally efficient Gehan's weight and the general's weight such as the logrank weight. For the least square estimation, the estimating equation is solved with Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE). Moreover, in multivariate cases, the dependence working correlation structure can be specified in GEE's setting.
