Topics: R

Fit parametric models for time-to-event data that show an initial 'incubation period', i.e., a variable phase where the hazard is zero. The delayed Weibull distribution serves as the foundational data model. The specific method of MPSE (maximum product of spacings estimation) is used for parameter estimation. Bootstrap confidence intervals for parameters and significance tests in a two group setting are provided.
