# st: data for streg

```Dear Users:

I am estimating a hazard model with data like the following wherein a person
(id)
can experience multiple "failures" but only when they are at risk. A person
does not become at risk immediately after experiencing a failure but only
after entering a particular state. The time a person becomes at risk is
indicated by the variable orig==1. The time of failure is given by fail==1.
I have used stset as follows

stset turns, failure(fail==1) exit(time .) id(id) origin(orig==1)

but this does not produce the appropriate dataset for analysis because
it assumes a person (id) becomes at risk at the first orig==1 and
then immediately after every failure. How can I create a dataset
that recognizes each time a person becomes at risk in a multiple risk
situation?

. list id turns sex crdnat tskid topic orig fail, separator(0)
