Un Modelo Lineal Generalizado Semiparametrico para Analisis de Duracion con Censura
Abstract[EN] Aitkin and Clayton (1980) proposed to analyze duration models using generalized linear models. In this work we extend that methodology allowing for some nonspecified covariable effect. The model we propose is a semiparametric generalized linear model, with a parametric component to specify the functional form of the effect of covariables on the duration variable, and a nonparametric component for the effect of some covariable without assuming any functional form. We develop the estimation process and we use a bootstrap procedure to do the inference. An empirical application to analyze the survival time for a sample of AIDS diagnosed patients is also included.
