Hi All,

I am estimating a discrete hazard model with unobserved heterogeneity
( which is statistically significant). Is there any test for goodness
of fit for such a model? I generated the fitted survival function and
compared it with the sample survivor function but it is hardly
satisfactory because a) using the below model I get a predicted hazard
 which assumes that the random effect is 0 and b) It is only a visual
comparison and hence not very convincing.

Any suggestions would be really helpful.
