biv.rec.fit(formula, data, method, CI)

Arguments

formula

A formula with six variables indicating the bivariate alternating gap time

response on the left of the ~ operator and the covariates on the right.

The six variables on the left must have the same length and be given as

ID + episode + xij + yij + d1 + d2 ~ covariates, where:

  • id: Vector of subject's unique identifier (i).

  • episode: Vector indicating the observation or episode (j) for a subject (i). This will determine order of events for each subject.

  • xij: Vector with the lengths of time spent in event of Type I for individual i in episode j.

  • yij: Vector with the lengths of time spent in event of Type II for individual i in episode j.

  • d1: Vector of censoring indicator corresponding to Type I gap times (xij): = 1 for uncensored, and = 0 for censored gap times.

  • d2: Vector of censoring indicator corresponding to Type II gap times (yij): = 1 for uncensored, and = 0 for censored gap times.

  • covariates: the names of the covariates in the form covariate_1 + ... + covariate_p.

data

A data frame that includes all the vectors/covariates listed in the formula above.

method

A string indicating which method to use to estimate effects of the covariates. See details.

CI

The level to be used for confidence intervals. Must be between 0.50 and 0.99. The default is 0.95.

Details

Two different estimation methods are available:
