st: pgmhaz/hshaz output, why does it look like this?

 From Hilde Karlsen To statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject st: pgmhaz/hshaz output, why does it look like this? Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 10:30:50 +0100

```Dear statalisters,

```
I am having trouble understanding why the result of my pgmhaz-command ends up like shown in the output below. (Why are there "missing" values on several of the estimates?)
```
```
Does this imply I should not use pgmhaz for my discrete time hazard analysis? I've tried hshaz, but it yielded the same result. Moreover, constructing the baseline hazard in a different manner (for example log(time), or creating finer time units with dummy variables) also does not solve this problem. I am trying to find out wether there is significant heterogeneity in the data, and the first analysis (nocons) suggested statistically significant frailty. Should I rather be using a different command/program?
```

Here is my syntax and output; I hope it is readable.
