## Example 2014.11: Contrasts the basic way for R

September 30, 2014

As we discuss in section 6.1.4 of the second edition, R and SAS handle categorical variables and their parameterization in models quite differently. SAS treats them on a procedure-by-procedure basis, which leads to some odd differences in capabilities and default parameterizations. For example, in the logistic procedure, the default is effect cell...

## Example 9.23: Demonstrating proportional hazards

March 13, 2012

A colleague recently asked after a slide suitable for explaining proportional hazards. In particular, she was concerned that her audience not focus on the time to event or probability of the event. An initial thought was to display the cumulative haz...

## Example 9.7: New stuff in SAS 9.3– Frailty models

September 27, 2011

Shared frailty models are a way of allowing correlated observations into proportional hazards models. Briefly, instead of l_i(t) = l_0(t)e^(x_iB), we allow l_ij(t) = l_0(t)e^(x_ijB + g_i), where observations j are in clusters i, g_i is typically norma...

## Example 7.42: Testing the proportionality assumption

June 21, 2010
By

In addition to the non-parametric tools discussed in recent entries, it's common to use proportional hazards regression, (section 4.3.1) also called Cox regression, in evaluating survival data.It's important in such models to test the proportionality a...
