Abstract:

This report presents three models for analyzing morbiditymortality data. The three models are a fully nonparametric model, a parametric model, and a semiparametric model. Maximum likelihood methods are used to estimate the parameters in all three models. In addition, there is a partial likelihood solution for the semiparametric model. This report is the culmination of investigations into modeling the natural history of disease with application to the Air Force Health Study. JS
