There are many survival books with a chapter on competing risks, but oneI have been following this discussion with interest - is there any book on this topic in solving economic problems that May Boggess or others would recommend?
I particularly like is by Marubini and Valsecchi, " Analysing Survival
Data from Clinical Trials and Observational Studies". Wiley: Chichester,
Marubini and Valsecchi discuss, among other things, the cumulative
incidence function, which is the equivalent of 1 - KM (the Kaplan-Meier
curve) when competing risks are present. To compute this you will find
the user-written command -stcompet- very useful.
