STPIECE: Stata module to estimate piecewise-constant hazard rate models
stpiece is a wrapper that uses a number of existing Stata routines to estimate piecewise-constant hazard rate models. A piecewise-constant model is an exponential hazard rate model where the constant rate is allowed to vary within pre-defined time-segments. Estimation of this model in Stata is usually a multi-step process, since one must manually define the time pieces and if necessary split the spells. stpiece automates this process.
