ln L(i)= c log h(t)+log S(t) This should actually be ln L(i)= c log h(t)+ (1-c) log S(t)

ln L(i)= c log h(t)+ (1-c) log S(t) - S(t0)

Hello, this is maybe a trivial question for some of you: how does stata account for the presence of repeated spells?I know that, in order to account for different spells that refers tothe same unit, stata requires to specify the id( ) option when thedata are stset-ted. But my question is about how stata deals with thisproblem in the estimation.For instance, suppose the contribution to the loglikelihood (withright censoring) is given by:L(i)= c log h(t)+log S(t)where c is a censoring variable (c=1 if spell is complete), h is thehazard function and S the survival function.How the contribution to the likelihood changes when unit i hasrepeated spells? In my case this is relevant because I have to programthe likelihood function by myself.Many thanks, Vinicio * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
