Discussion of Double Sampling for Survival Analysis
(written by Stuart G. Baker)
These programs are related to the discussion article "Discussion of Double Sampling for Survival Analysis" to appear in Biometrics following the manuscript by Frangakis and Rubin (FR). Most of the software is based on the model in Baker, Wax, and Patterson (1993) (BWP)
The program requires Mathematica.
The first step is to load composite linear model software into a directory called clm.
Then download the following files.
