frailtySurv: General semiparametric shared frailty model

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


frailtySurv provides a suite of functions for generating clustered survival data, fitting multivariate shared frailty models under a wide range of frailty distributions, and visualizing the output. The semi-parametric estimators have better asymptotic properties than most existing implementations, including consistent and asymptotically-normal estimators. Moreover, this is the first package that implements semi-parametric estimators with inverse Gaussian and PVF frailty models.
