Dear Paul,

In fact, since posting, I have read around&  done some web searches&  realised that survival analysis with competing risks is not so different from ordinary survival analysis, which answers my immediate problem .  The same regression methods and software can apparently be used.  It is only necessary to treat the subjects with competing events (women undergoing induction or C/S) as censored at the end of the study period.


I believe that ordinary survival regression can be applied to competing risks situation if observations are appropriately weighted (Geskus, Biometrics 2011 67, 39–49). Unfortunately the very interesting approach proposed in the paper is not currently available within Stata.

Let me know if I should change this not encouraging point of view.
Best wishes.

Enzo
