Multiple event-time data appear often in clinical studies to evaluate
treatments for chronic diseases and in longitudinal follow-up studies.
When the sampling unit is a cluster of subjects like in family studies
or for paired design in clinical studies, some frailty variables (
unobservable ) need to be incorporated into the model. In this talk, we
will explore several approaches and apply the proposed methods to real
example data for illustration.
