A comparison of methods for analysing interval-censored and truncated survival data

Bibliography: leaves 49-50. / This thesis examines three methods for analysing right-censored data: the Cox proportional hazards model (Cox, 1972), the Buckley-James regression model (Buckley and James, 1979) and the accelerated failure time model. These models are extended to incorporate the analysis of interval-censored and left-truncated data. The models are compared in an attempt to determine whether one model performs better than the others in terms of goodness-of-it and in terms of predictive power. Plots of the residuals and random effects from the Cox proportional hazards model are also examined.
