(p.205) 8 Parametric Models for Hazard Functions
Multivariate Methods in Epidemiology

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers several approaches to using regression models when a mathematical expression that describes the way in which the hazard varies with time is known. The simplest of these is the constant hazard model, which does not vary with time. Applications of the Poisson regression model are described. The Weibull distribution is also considered, which provides very useful generalizations to the constant hazard assumption. Exercises are provided at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   regression, constant hazard model, weibull hazard model, failure-time models, poisson distribution, poisson regression model
