Joint model of longitudinal and survival data
Lei Liu, Ph.D.
In this talk we will give an introduction to the shared random effects models for the joint analysis of longitudinal and time-to-event data. First, we will show situations where such joint model can be applied to. We will then illustrate our model by examples. A simple estimation method by SAS Proc NLMIXED will be demonstrated. This introductory talk helps clarify confusions in the joint modeling of longitudinal and time-to-event data, making such models more accessible to general statistical practitioners.
