multipleNCC-package: Weighted partial likelihood for nested case-control data

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


Fits Cox proportional hazards models with a weigthed partial likelihood. It handles competing risks (with one endpoint being a special situation). It uses cases and controls from other endpoints as additional controls for each endpoint. See wpl for help.

Four weight estimators are implemented; Kaplan-Meier type KMprob, GAM (GAMprob), GLM (GLMprob) and local averaging (Chenprob)
