Tasha Amin:

If you ascertain failure status only at fixed intervals, your data are grouped,
a special case of interval censoring. See:
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2012-08/msg00936.html and Stephen
Jenkins's followup at
http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2012-07/msg01095.html, which references
his lessons at http://www.iser.essex.ac.uk/survival-analysis.

I am curious: at what University are you doing your Ph.D.?

Hi all:

I have panel data with multiple visits per individual. Visits are every 6 months. I have -stset- the data and will be using incidence density sampling to get case-control sets (so -stset- followed by -sttocc- and then -clogit-).

My question is, what is the best way to generate gaps for those with skipped visits?  For example, if someone comes at visit 1 and then comes after 2 years for visit 5, what is the best way to generate a gap in _t so that we don't incorporate the missing 2 years into analysis time?

Is it using -stsplit- or is there some other way? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
